Pest, Disease and Weed Identification
The Asian Longhorned tick is a recent invasive tick to Pennsylvania. This tick can be found on wildlife and on livestock. It is important to be aware of the presence of this tick and to implement prevention and control measures when necessary.
Exclusion prevents the entrance of pest organisms into new rooms and their escape from older ones. The latter should not be underestimated.
