Asian Longhorned Tick

(Haemaphysalis Longicornis)

The Asian longhorned tick (Haemaphysalis longicornis) has recently been discovered in the United States. It is typically found in China, Japan, Korea and other Asian countries.

Unfortunately, little is known of the population inhabiting the U.S. Scientists are still looking to determine preferred host, life cycle and diseases it can acquire and transmit.

What we do know is:

Adult females are parthenogenetic meaning they can lay fertilized eggs without an adult male mate.

The Tick Research Lab of Pennsylvania is able to detect the most common tick-borne diseases in any of these species. Our tick DNA tests are over 99.9% accurate.
