Dr. Risa Pesapane is an assistant professor at The Ohio State University whose research program focuses on the ecology and surveillance of ticks and tick-borne pathogens. She is asking for help collecting ticks from all over the state to fill basic knowledge gaps in the distribution of ticks and their pathogens in Ohio. Ticks of any species, from any host, and any time of the year are requested. We thank you for your assistance in improving our understanding of ticks in Ohio!
