NYS IPM Farmer Tick Survey

Ticks don’t really care where you are farming so we are hoping to keep all our growers safe from tick borne diseases.

If you have not already, please take this short survey:  https://tinyurl.com/yc7rnd6r

The Community IPM Program (part of NYSIPM) was funded by the NY State Senate Task Force on Lyme and Tick Borne Disease to create an educational campaign about the risks of tick exposure and tick awareness for New York.

Community IPM addresses non-agricultural pest issues for every New York resident, including farmers. This survey is a research project to help us understand what tick issues and concerns NY farmers are facing on their farms and home properties.

By completing this survey you are agreeing to participate in this research. Your answers are completely anonymous and will help us understand how serious the issue is and how to raise awareness with the farming community.

Please fill out the survey (just 10 questions!) here:  https://tinyurl.com/yc7rnd6r

For more information about this survey or about ticks and tick prevention or control, please contact Jody Gangloff-Kaufmann at jlg23@cornell.edu.

Thank you!
