Tick ID Lab - Tick Species of Maine

Print Friendly

There are fourteen different tick species that have been found in Maine, though not all are permanent residents. Some may arrive in the state on host organisms and do not establish viable populations. Other species have thrived in Maine and are now widespread throughout much of the state. Certain tick species can be very difficult to differentiate from one another. Professional tick identification is recommended.
