AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 16 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO TICK CONTROL.
This Act is the result of the findings of the Lyme Disease Prevention Task Force (“the Task Force”). On June 1, 2015, the Task Force issued a report that made several recommendations. One of the recommendations was to “[d]evelop on a statewide basis a science-based Integrated Pest Management strategy incorporating acaricide use, biological controls, management of tick-host animals and backyard habitat management.” To implement this strategy, the Task Force recommended a change to state law to allow the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control to address ticks and be involved in field control operations for ticks. This Act amends the powers and duties of the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control by granting it the authority to address tick mitigation in the manner recommended by the Task Force.
