The Tick Lab provides tick diagnostics, public outreach, and conducts applied research on ticks in Maine. If you have questions about ticks, would like more information on submitting a tick, or are interested in organizing a presentation on ticks, feel free to contact us.
The Tick Lab is not a medical diagnostic lab and thus we do not offer medical advice.
