BDN talks with Dill, Gardner about fall tick resurgence

The Bangor Daily News spoke with Griffin Dill, a University of Maine Cooperative Extension tick expert, and Allison Gardner, an assistant professor in the School of Biology and Ecology, about the impact of drought on ticks and the expected increase in tick activity with wetter, cooler fall weather. WVII (channel 7) and WGME (channel 13 in Portland) also interviewed Dill about the expected increase in the activity of adult ticks in October and November. The Piscataquis Observer and Cherokee Tribune and Ledger News shared the BDN story.
