Tick Identification and Surveillance

  • Name, street address, nearest cross-street, zip code, and day-time phone number
  • Location of where specimen was found or most likely to have had contact
  • Duration between tick contact and when tick was removed from skin (if you were bitten)

Any tick can be brought into our lab and identified. The specimen must be alive and kept in a plastic bag with a moist paper towel to keep the specimen moist. We do annual tick collection and testing on popular hiking trails throughout San Mateo County.
