Asian longhorned tick (Haemaphysalis longicornis) nymph and female

The Asian longhorned tick (Haemaphysalis longicornis) was discovered in the U.S. in 2017, and it poses health threats to both animals and humans. A new guide in the Journal of Integrated Pest Management outlines the different management strategies that are being developed, and surveillance and prevention are key to reducing this non-native arthropod’s impact. Shown here are a nymph (left) and adult female. (Photo by James Gathany, CDC Public Health Image Library)
