Fri, Sep 04, 2020

Originally from eastern Asia, the Asian longhorned tick, Haemaphysalis longicornis, has successfully established itself in Australia, New Zealand, several Pacific Region island nations and now the United States. A tick found on a sheep in New Jersey in 2017 was thought to be the first one in the United States; however, further analysis found the tick in samples from as early as 2010.

Have you ever found a tick on your pet or on yourself? These tiny creatures are growing in numbers in North America and Northern Europe. With the explosion in tick populations and increasing geographic distribution in the tick species, more people and more animals are at risk of acquiring a tick bite and becoming infected with a tick-borne disease. For your health and that of your pets, the work being done by OSU’s Tick Team is more important than ever before.
