CFTEP established a permanent quarantine or "buffer" zone along the Texas-Mexico border to keep the ticks out of the United States.
When outbreaks occur in the quarantined area, ticks are eradicated by CFTEP inspectors in cooperation with the Texas Animal Health Commission.
For almost 49 years, the ARS Knipling-Bushland Livestock Insects Research Laboratory in Kerrville, Texas, along with its satellite worksite at Moore Field in southern Texas, has been charged with providing technical support to CFTEP.
