See a tick but not sure what type it is—or if it’s even a tick?--or if there are any associated health risks? TickClick provides pictures of various types of ticks and offers information on safe removal and destruction, health concerns, ways to avoid ticks, and information and precautions for pets.
TickClick also provides a chart of the most common tick borne diseases and lists which type of ticks can transmit each disease. Plus, the app lists some of the common symptoms for each disease including Lyme, Babesiosis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever and others.
