We would love for all our I-TICK members to take the Knowledge, Attitudes and Prevention Practices (KAP) of Farmers in Illinois on Ticks & Tick-borne diseases (TBD) study survey.

This is a study in collaboration with the University of Illinois Extension. Our goal is to determine the awareness and knowledge of farmers in Illinois regarding ticks and tick-borne diseases as well as compare the perceived vs actual risk of TBD risk in farmers. The study involves completing a one-time 30 min survey and if interested- having farm areas dragged for ticks by the study team. We hope that the responses collected from the survey will help in implementing appropriate tick prevention and education efforts at the county level in Illinois among farmers.
