OSU Extension Releases Fact Sheet on New Tick Species

As noted last week, State Veterinarian, Rod Hall alerted us of a new tick species to be aware of.  We recieved another note from Dr. Hall saying the following — “I wanted to let you all know that the new species of tick that was discovered in New Jersey last fall, then in Virginia and West Virginia earlier this spring has been discovered on a dog in Benton County, Arkansas, which adjoins Delaware and Adair Counties in NE Oklahoma.”

Dr. Justin Talley, OSU Extension Entomologist, has put together a fact sheet about the tick that can be accessed here: http://livestockbugs.okstate.edu/PA%2017-16.pdf
