Consider having it tested for major disease causing pathogens. In addition to Lyme disease, there are many microbes in ticks that can cause disease in you, your children or your pet. But not not all ticks are infected and not all tick bites are risky. Our partners at the Laboratory of Medical Zoology can test the tick and give you the highly accurate information to assess the risk to you or your family member bitten by a tick.
Standard identification and testing for Lyme Disease costs $50 per tick.
Place your tick in a plastic bag and mail it to our lab. It can be sent via USPS, FedEx or UPS. We’ll identify it and determine the correct tests to apply.
Your results are securely delivered via email within 3-5 business days after your tick arrives at our lab.
