Tick Tracking Study Resumes for 2019

News-Gazette (May 22) – A collaboration between the veterinary college and the Illinois Natural History Survey, I-TICK is expanding this year, so researchers are seeking even more volunteers to take part. I-TICK researchers are still in the process of testing ticks that were sent to them last year, according to Rebecca Smith, one of the two I-TICK program coordinators. They’re hoping to learn more about where and when ticks are active in various areas of the state and where ticks are spreading diseases, she said.
