Share your experience to help us develop better strategies to prevent tick bites and keep people healthier. Do you wonder why you are always finding ticks but your neighbors or friends never do? We want to know the answer to that question too!
The Tick App will ask you about your activities, your environment and possible prevention strategies in the enrollment survey. The app contains a quick Tick ID guide and helpful information on ticks and the diseases they transmit. You can also report-a-tick and you will be asked to share your daily tick encounters (or lack thereof) and activities during tick-season. With your permission we will also collect information on your location to improve the risk-factor assessment.
You can download the app from iTunes and Google Play Store. If you don’t have a smart-phone, don’t want to use it for this purpose or just prefer paper you can enroll through our website www.thetickapp.org.
