Position Statement - Tick borne diseases

In November 2014 the Science Policy Capability Committee agreed that ESA should have a position statement written about the management of diseases caused by ticks. Specifically, a writing committee was formed to address the following task:

Tick-borne Diseases:  The writing committee will develop a position statement recommending a national strategy for minimizing transmission of tick-borne diseases to humans and domesticated animals. Any recommendations should be based on entomological science and have strong support in the literature.

The ESA Position Statement on Tick-borne Diseases was approved and made public on July 29, 2015.
