My Voice Was Heard: 4-Posters
Reducing the prevalence of deer ticks on the Lab site is a top priority for the Environmental Protection Division. Ticks carry disease, and deer a primary vector for spreading ticks. Tim Green and the Environmental Protection Division devised a program using 4-poster stands with insecticide to reduce the prevalence of ticks on local deer. The deer visit the 4-poster stands to feed, and while there they rub up against the pesticide. The result is a safer, healthier Lab site. These Brookhaven Lab employees in the Environmental Protection Division spoke up. They saw an opportunity, offered a solution, and got management support. Their voices were heard.
