Technical Abstract: The subject invention provides materials and methods for tick control. The tick control methods of the subject invention are particularly advantageous because they utilize natural chemical signals (pheromones) in combination with an acaricide. The use of environmentally friendly pheromones makes it possible to use acaricide in a highly selective and efficient manner thereby reducing exposure of the environment to acaricides.
