Tick Season Opens Today!

After spending the past 18 years doing research in laboratories only, I’m heading out to do some fieldwork.  My collaborator, Dr. Amy Kuenzi, and I along with an undergraduate researcher, Zach Hart, who is supported by the SURF (summer undergraduate research fellowship) program at Montana Tech.  We will be using a method called “tick flagging” to find the ticks.  Here’s a video about this method that is brought to you by the Army.
