Knowledge is Power
Here at Tickipedia, we are dedicated to providing the most accurate and up-to-date information on ticks and tick-borne diseases.
Our wildlife scientists work out of the Northeast Wildlife DNA Laboratory at East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania studying ticks and tick-borne diseases through hands-on research and literature review of the latest scientific papers in an effort to create a one stop educational resource for you!
Our mission is to contribute to an ongoing, nationwide effort to bring awareness about ticks and tick-borne diseases because the more you know, the better you can protect yourself and your loved ones.

Lyme disease is the fastest growing infectious disease in the United States
Lyme disease is the most reported vector-borne disease in the United States infecting over 300,000 people annually according to the CDC.
Up to 90 percent of ticks are carriers of a disease.
If a tick is found on your body, the fastest way to determine your exposure to a tick-borne disease is to have the tick tested! Ticks can be submitted to a university affiliated laboratory at Tick Check.
