About Us

We've partnered with the preeminent Laboratory of Medical Zoology (LMZ), to offer a battery of tests to detect disease-causing microbes in ticks.  Your tick can be tested for over 20 different disease causing organisms that ticks can carry (like Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and newly discovered diseases like Powassan, Heartland, and Colorado Tick Fever Virus). We now share that data as part of Tick-Borne Disease Network passive surveillance that we hope will provide unprecedented insights to who is being bitten by ticks, when they get bitten, and what pathogens those ticks are carrying. We encourage everyone to SAVE THE TICKS! ....for Testing!
