Public Tick IPM Working Group: Dr. Paskewitz presentation on the Upper Midwest

She states we have at least a three fold increase of tick borne disease in Wisconsin since the 1990’s.  Anaplasmosis has increased as well.
She also states hardly anything has been done about tick control in Wisconsin and that they must rely on East Coast tick control research – which is unfortunate as there may be significant differences in a host of issues.
Work by others has shown invasives such as honeysuckle (lone star), Japanese Barberry (I. scapulars),
and unpublished data on Buckthorn (I. scapulars) are related to tick abundance.  
Tick tubes have shown conflicting results.
