Request a FREE Tick Identification

If you can upload one or more high-quality, detailed photographs of a tick to us, we can identify the tick's species for you free of charge. Please send at least two photographs depicting a clear and focused view of the tick's ventral side (front) and dorsal side (back) for better identification purposes. Multiple photos can be attached on a single submission, but they should be of a single tick.
