Presentation:  "Tick Surveillance, Management Strategies and Personal 
Moses Cucura, an entomologist, is the Tick Specialist for Suffolk County 
Department of Public Works, Division of Vector Control and an appointed member 
to the Suffolk County Tick Control Advisory Committee. He examines existing and 
emerging tick management strategies and products through locally held field 
efficacy trials and provides technical assistance to entities interested in or 
conducting tick management. In addition, he operates a long term tick 
surveillance program with sites across Suffolk County tracking species, 
populations, seasonal activity, and environmental parameters to help improve 
management efforts.

The presentation will briefly review Suffolk County Vector Control's 
county-wide tick surveillance and management initiative. Deer Tick (Ixodes 
scapularis), Lone Star Tick (Amblyomma americanum) and the American Dog Tick 
(Dermacentor variabilis) ecologies will be reviewed and their relationships to 
management strategies highlighted. Individual tick management strategies will 
be examined and the potential synergistic effects of implementing multiple 
strategies simultaneously will be reviewed. Field efficacy of select synthetic 
and various green or organic acaricide products and application methods will be 
examined based on existing literature and Suffolk County Vector Control's field 
efficacy trials. Lastly, tick repellent types and concentrations data will be 
presented and discussed to improve personal protection while outdoors.
