Did you recently send us a tick? Please tell us about it!
Indicates required field
Please tell us your name, so we can identify your tick when it arrives.
If you want us to contact you about your submission, or for any other reason, please provide us with a valid email. We will never sell, share, or distribute your email for any reason, and will delete it permanently upon request.
1. Where did you collect the tick?
Most state monitoring of disease vectors like ticks is compiled at the county level.
GPS coordinates would be the most useful location information for us.
2. When did you collect the tick?
Please provide the date of collection (at least month and year).
3. Was the tick alive when you collected it?
Yes it was alive
No, it appeared to be dead
I really couldn't tell
An easy way to tell if a tick is alive is to exhale gently over it. Ticks respond to carbon dioxide in your breath.
4. Was the tick on an animal?
No, it was not on an animal
If this tick was collected from an animal, please tell us which animal.
If the animal is not included in our list above, please choose other and tell us the animal here.
5. If it was on an animal, was it attached?
Yes, it was attached
No, this tick was just crawling around
I don't know
Please tell us, if you collected this tick from an animal, whether it was attached or not.
