    • Interaction between Asian long-horned tick (Haemaphysalis longicornis) and a human host 

      Sherpa, Phurchhoki; Louis Calder Center, Fordham University (Northeast Regional Center for Excellence in Vector-Borne Diseases, 2019-08-29)
      After observing Asian long-horned tick's (Haemaphysalis longicornis) peculiar behavior of avoiding contacts with humans, I was curious to see if the ticks would latch on (to feed) if I forcefully placed them on my hand. ...
    • Use of permethrin to trap Asian long-horned tick (Haemaphysalis longicornis) 

      Sherpa, Phurchhoki; Louis Calder Center, Fordham University (Northeast Regional Center for Excellence in Vector-Borne Diseases, 2019-08-29)
      I explored permethrin treated cloth as one of the possible solutions for containing/trapping Asian long-horned ticks (H. longicornis) that were attracted to CO2 (used dry ice). I treated a small piece of corduroy cloth ...
    • Use of tanglefoot, brush on sticky coating, to trap Asian long-horned tick (Haemaphysalis longicornis) 

      Sherpa, Phurchhoki; Louis Calder Center, Fordham University (Northeast Regional Center for Excellence in Vector-Borne Diseases, 2019-08-29)
      I explored sticky trap (tanglefoot: brush on coating) as one of the solutions to keep Asian long-horned ticks trapped around CO2 reservoir. Before implementing the idea in the field, I conducted an observation in the lab. ...
    • Can vegetable oil moat trap Asian long-horned tick (Haemaphysalis longicornis)? 

      Sherpa, Phurchhoki; Louis Calder Center, Fordham University (Northeast Regional Center for Excellence in Vector-Borne Diseases, 2019-08-29)
      As one of the possible solutions for keeping Asian long-horned ticks (H. longicornis) trapped around CO2 reservoirs, I conducted lab observations using vegetable oil. It appears that once H. longicornis is in oil, they ...
    • Does Asian long-horned tick (Haemaphysalis longicornis) drown in water? 

      Sherpa, Phurchhoki; Louis Calder Center, Fordham University (Northeast Regional Center for Excellence in Vector-Borne Diseases, 2019-08-29)
      I explored water moat as one of the solutions for trapping Asian long-horned ticks (Haemaphysalis longicornis) that were attracted to CO2 reservoirs. Before employing the idea in the field, I conducted an observation in ...
