Luis secures funding to investigate the suitability of an entomopathogenic fungi for tick control

Jan 22, 2024

Nice work, Luis! Luis found a species of fungus killing our local dog ticks (Dermacentor variabilis) and will now be working to determine how best to use this fungus as biocontrol against both dog ticks and blacklegged ticks. We're excited to once again pair up with Dr. Nicoletta Faraone - resident tick control/natural product chemistry expert - on this project!
