ILLINOIS

We will identify the tick species, life stage, and sex for FREE– and send that information to you (if you include contact information). Then we destroy the tick to use for research. We are studying the relatedness of tick populations around the state and their microbiomes.​

The INHS Medical Entomology Lab is not testing ticks for disease agents to return results to individuals right now and **we do not have the means to return ticks** if they are needed for disease agent testing later.

The Tick Testing Program at the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station was founded in 1990, following years of pioneering Lyme disease research. In 2015, the program was expanded to include testing for two emerging tick-associated pathogens for the first time: Anaplasma phagocytophilum, the causative agent of Human Granulocytic Anaplasmosis, and Babesia microti, the causative agent of Babesiosis, in addition to Borrelia burgdorferi, the causative agent of Lyme disease. Ticks are accepted only from residents of CT, and must be submitted through their local health departments.
