UAMS Tick Testing

UAMS needs your help collecting ticks across Arkansas to study Lyme disease.

A research team wants to test ticks from all 75 Arkansas counties...but can't do it without YOU!

Directions:

Place tick(s) in a small ziploc bag with a moist cotton ball or piece of wet paper towel and seal the top of the bag with tape. Multiple ticks can be combined in a single bag if they all have the same history (e.g.; similar collection site/date, collected from same animal, etc.).

Complete the form (to download form, please click on tick photo below).

Place the baggie and this form in a small padded envelope and ship to the address on the form. Alternatively, you can contact us at ARTickTesting@uams.edu to discuss whether it might be feasible for us to either pick them up or have you drop them off at UAMS.
