Texas A&M AgriLife Tick Research Gets $1M Boost

Two NIFA-funded projects by Texas A&M AgriLife Research scientists aim to protect the U.S. cattle industry from the emerging and significant threat of pesticide-resistant cattle fever ticks. The projects aim to create new ways to prevent tick infestations and protect Texas cattle from the diseases spread by cattle fever ticks, which carry parasites and bacteria that cause deadly diseases. A few treatments but no effective vaccines exist for these diseases.
