BDN interviews Dill about ‘No Mow May’ and ticks

Griffin Dill, manager of the University of Maine’s Tick Lab, spoke to the Bangor Daily News about how measures like “No Mow May” can impact tick populations. “It’s hard to reconcile all these tick control measures with the desire to have a more natural landscape overall. People are becoming more cognizant of protecting pollinator habitat and unfortunately the two don’t mesh well together at the moment,” Dill said.
