About the Cover

Incidence of tickborne diseases is increasing in the U.S. and is a concern to the public. As environments are becoming more suitable for sustaining tick populations, these arthropod vectors are spreading and making their way into new regions. This issue’s cover article, “Tick Dragging: Using a Drone to Reduce Surveyor Exposure,” explored the use of a drone to conduct tick dragging surveillance as an alternative to the standard human personnel method. While statistical analysis showed no difference in the drone and human personnel drag methods, further studies are needed to confirm these findings and identify any potential differences in human and drone tick dragging surveillance.
