Subject: new news on Asian Longhorned Tick’s capacity to carry a NEW disease to the US.

For anyone unaware of the new Asian longhorned tick, another bad headline about it:

This tick has been identified in NYS.  For more information on this tick visit our NYS IPM web page:


We have no reason to believe that it is not more widely distributed within NY outside where it has been confirmed on the maps.

Please be vigilant in checking livestock for this new pest.
