Meet the CNY science and technology teacher who invented a tick collection machine

KIRKVILLE (WSYR-TV) – Jason Dean left an engineering career to become a science and technology teacher.

But over the summer months, when he’s not teaching at Union Springs, he can’t shake the engineering bug.

He’s invented a tick collection machine – inspired when his niece got Lyme Disease.

The first step of the machine involves homeowners rolling a device along the grass, with a soft fabric that attracts the ticks. Then, a vacuum-like machine is used to suck the ticks into a tank of water.

In the tank, a light kills the bugs and disinfects any diseases.

Dean has patents pending on his machine and hopes investors will help him mass produce it for sale.
