TICK CONTROL ALERT FOR CORBIN CITY, NJ:
 
Corbin City, home to the Tuckahoe Wildlife Management Area, is the least populous city in New Jersey. It is stretched over multiple county areas and the Pinelands National Reserve (the nation’s first National Reserve).

While the rural, historic personality of Corbin City is charming, the vast possibilities of disease-carrying ticks are not. Protected wildlife within arms reach can easily transport Lyme’s disease to a Corbin City resident’s backyard, or home.
