dc.description.abstractI 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. As you can see, from the video, H. longicornis crawl on the sticky trap in pursuit of CO2 reservoir (dry ice placed on the other side of the trap). They get stuck on the sticky coating. Then, the ticks frantically wiggle their legs and are able to walk free. After they have experienced the trap once, the ticks didn't seem to go back on the sticky surface; they avoided it and crawled away.en_US
