Ticks with Felicia Keesing MARGARET ROACH A WAY TO GARDEN

    • Education

How are we doing in the effort to reduce tick encounters, and the diseases that ticks carry and can transmit to humans? The results from a multi-year study in Dutchess County, New York, one of the areas in the United States with the highest rates of Lyme disease, shed some light on that question. 






One of the study’s directors is here today to talk about the findings --- and about her advice for best practices that each of us gardeners can take for personal protection.  




 My guest to talk ticks is Dr. Felicia Keesing, a professor of biology at Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, and one of the two directors of The Tick Project with Dr. Rick Ostfeld of Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies in Millbrook.
