CNY Science Teacher Invents Tick Vacuum

posted by Pat McMahon -

A Union Springs Science teacher has created a tick trap to keep people safe. Jason Dean actually left an engineering career to become a teacher, and came up with the idea after his niece got Lyme Disease. It’s a super simple device that uses a soft fabric to attract the ticks as you roll it across your lawn. A vacuum-like machine is then used to suck them up. Dean has patents pending and hopes investors will help him mass produce it. Read more about Dean's invention here: Channel 9 - WSYR
