The TickApp for Texas and the Southern Region has been developed to provide citizen consumers and professional practitioners with a convenient guide to the identification of ticks impacting humans, livestock, companion animals, and wildlife. The app also provides educational information on tick biology, association of disease causing pathogens, prevention and protection, and control and management.
The TickApp highlights information about a new invasive tick, Haemaphysalis longicornis, and two tick species that fall under state-federal regulation for quarantine and eradication. Delivery of this information through smart phones and other similar devices is intended to reach consumers and practitioners quickly and conveniently when and where it is needed most – the field, home, clinical or client-based settings.
Information presented through the app is for educational purposes only. References to commercial products or trade names are based on label information and research conducted by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and Texas A&M AgriLife Research and not intended as an endorsement of the product or a specific manufacturer. There is no implication that other formulations containing the same active chemical are not equally effective. Commercial products or trade names mentioned are for example purposes only. Viewers should compare active ingredients on labels to determine the choice of product for decision-making purposes.
The TickApp is a product of Texas A&M AgriLife Research and the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service funded in part through a grant provided by the Southern Region IPM Center.
