TERC can help you identify your tick if you attach a picture. (If you'd like to send us multiple pictures, please make one submission and respond to our follow-up email with additional images. This helps avoid duplicate entries. Thank you!).
If you don't know what kind of tick it is, attach a picture of the tick and TickEncounter will try to help you identify your tick.
Larva are the size of a grain of salt and have 6 legs. Nymphs and adult ticks have 8 legs.
If you encountered your tick in Canada or Mexico, choose the appropriate country from the State/Country drop-down and then select the corresponding Province or State below.
Please check to make sure your email address is correct.
