TICK AWARENESS & MANAGEMENT WORKSHOP

 

During our 2018-19 School year we presented our Tick Awareness & Management Workshop For Schools.

This workshop was presented by The New York Schools Insurance Reciprocal, ONC BOCES (Safety and Risk Management) and NYS IPM Program - Cornell University.
 

Topics covered were:

  • Hour 1Classroom – Presentation by NYSIPM Specialist on tick species, ecology, disease potential & management strategies.
  • Hour 2 – Participants built tick drag mats for monitoring tick activity outdoors.
  • Hour 3 – Exterior grounds – Participants learned how to perform a tick drag and how to identify ticks and how to interpret the results. Various management strategies were discussed.
 
The NY State IPM Program has a long history of cooperation with K-12 schools to promote the adoption of integrated pest management & best practices for indoor & outdoor pests. Ticks are of increasing concern for New Yorkers & disease incidence is on the rise. To keep school children safe while attending school, grounds departments need to understand & effectively manage ticks & exposure to ticks
