Bitten by a tick? Find out if it carries Lyme disease!

About Lyme Disease: Lyme disease is the most common disease transmitted by tick bites, and Virginia is one of the highest-risk states. Symptoms commonly mimic influenza and arthritis, and may develop into serious neurological or cardiac conditions.

Over 55% of ticks carry Lyme or another tick-borne disease. [1]

Lyme disease, the most common tickborne disease in the United States[2], can cause fever, headache, fatigue, and a characteristic skin rash called erythema migrans. If left untreated, infection can spread to joints, the heart, and the nervous system.[3]

TickCheck™ can determine with 99.99% accuracy if the tick that bit you carries Lyme or 10 additional tick-borne diseases. Here's how it works:

  1. Order a tick test on
  2. Send your tick directly to our lab - no waiting for a kit!
  3. Get your tick test results within 24-48 hours of lab receipt.

Test your tick now to determine your risk of contracting Lyme.

Symptoms of Lyme appear days or weeks after the initial bite. Only tick testing enables you to determine if you were exposed to a tick-borne disease before symptoms ever appear, allowing you to discuss proactive treatment options with your doctor. Get your tick tested now!

We got an immediate email identifying the tick specimen we sent and had the full lab results 26 hours later, just as promised. Tick check was quick and gave us the turnaround and answers we were looking for so we could make informed decisions if needed. I highly recommend this company.
