About STOP

"Stop Ticks on People" is an initiative sponsored and funded by STOP Ticks, LLC. STOP is dedicated to the prevention of Lyme disease and other tick-borne disorders by stopping the disease at it's source, the tick. Our initiative is to study and implement environmentally safe methods of tick control thus reducing the incidence and prevalence of these diseases.

Lyme disease and other tick-borne disorders can have a debilitating affect on those infected, especially when not diagnosed at an early stage. Many scientific issues surround these diseases, including lack of a definitive testing and treatment protocols. Given this backdrop of medical uncertainty, STOP's mission is an important and timely public health initiative

STOP was created on the recommendation of the Dutchess County Legislative Task Force to Study Tick Control to form an organization that would carry on and expand upon it's mission. STOP operates as a coalition in partnership with Families First New York, Inc. and various other organizations united to reduce the incidence of tick-borne disease through education, awareness and prevention.

To better achieve it's goals, STOP has formed a Scientific Advisory Board and Community Advisory Board. These advisory boards ensure that projects undertaken by STOP are scientifically and environmentally sound, as well as responsive to the needs of the community. As a non-profit, charitable organization, STOP accepts funding from public, private and individual sources to further it's work.
 

STOP is dedicated to finding safe environmental solutions to tick control, reducing the incidence and prevalence of tick-borne disease through education, research and prevention.
