I’m pleased to have this paper—Off-house survival of blacklegged ticks—finally published! It represents the work of dozens of project assistants and two stellar research associates doing the hard work of finding ticks (>9000!) and putting them in bespoke “soil core enclosures” with data loggers only to dig them up weeks or months later to search them for live ticks! At three sites over three years! It was a monumental project and I extend my thanks to everyone that helped make this a reality!
