Tick-borne diseases (TBDs) affect tens of thousands of Americans each year, afflicting them with serious illness that causes significant morbidity and sometimes mortality. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) of ticks that bite humans is an important part of preventing TBDs. Although better tools for vector surveillance and control would make IPM programs stronger, more effective, and less expensive, the technology already exists to start preventing TBDs. Programs exist locally for IPM of ticks, but those programs are very limited and have not prevented what appears to be the expanding importance of tickborne diseases in the United States. Communicating the need and capability for community-wide tick IPM is a priority, as well as organizing the information and IPM techniques already available.
