    New Invasive Tick concerns

    Watching the news this morning there was a feature about a new invasive tick infestation. The Asian Longhorn Tick has begun to establish itself in the Northeast and Mid Atlantic area.

    Did a search and came up with some additional information.

    Be careful out there folks!

    Ugh. Yet another reason I wish I could put one of those new CDC endorsed “4 poster deer feeders” out in the woods. But the Wisconsin DNR, in their infinite wisdom doesn’t allow for gravity feeders to be used for fear of “baiting” deer. If you’re reading Wi DNR; I don’t hunt, there’s plenty of food for deer and I’m not particularly inclined to feed them. But I’d gladly feed them if I could reduce the tick population in my area by 80% + on the property. I guess I’ll just keep buying Doxycycline on eBay for now...

    Not sure if you know this or not but the DNR has banned feeding and baiting deer in most of the state. It is also now illegal to transport deer carcasses out of the county it was killed in, unless its being taken to a taxidermist. They’re trying to stop the spread of CWD.

    Ticks are a problem in ne wi we sure don’t need any new ones

    I get what you’re saying and I have read about the issues you’ve mentioned. My frustration with the DNR is based off intent. I don’t want to feed the deer and I certainly don’t want to bait them for personal gain. I would like to be able to use feeding to help control tick population for the sake of my health and the health of my animals. If you’ve not seen the four poster control units I’d check them out, perhaps one day it will be an available control method for us. I’m sure up north is no different than the SE that I reside in, deer ticks are rampant in this state these days.
