Webinar - Ticks & Fire: Can Long-term Prescribed Fire be used to Reduce Tick-borne Disease Risk?

Description

Sponsored by the Oak Woodlands & Forests Fire Consortium

The incidence and emergence of tick-borne diseases has increased dramatically in the past several decades. Thus, the need to identify practical, effective ways of reducing tick-borne disease risk is critical. Could prescribed fire be used to do just that--- control tick populations and reduce tick-borne disease risk? Join Liz Gleim, a tick-borne disease ecologist and assistant professor from Hollins University, as she shares with you the fascinating findings of her research on the impacts of long-term prescribed fire on ticks and tick-borne disease risk.
