AtlanTick fully recognizes that there is still much to learn about tick biology and behaviour. The body of knowledge related to ticks is ever changing and evolving as ticks enter new territories and adapt and expand their capacity to spread disease, and as researchers continue to focus more on tick related issues. We base our posts on information from reliable and accepted sources available at the time of publishing. AtlanTick does it's best to present up to date information and may change post contents according to society's evolving understanding of all things tick. We do not claim to provide complete information regarding each topic, and offer related references as both the source material for our posts and a jumping off point for your own investigation.
