Clever approach to fight tick-borne diseases – “A tick-exterminator designed by three engineering undergrads at the Virginia Military Institute scours yards for ticks and nabs them with its pesticide-laced denim skirt.” [via] Link.

Interesting, iRobot may want to consider chatting with these fellows – a ruggedized Roomba, with its AI, and this approach could work out well for areas with ticks.
