Lyme disease, the most common tickborne disease in the United States, 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.
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:
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!
Lyme disease is the most common disease transmitted by tick bites, and Virginia is a high-risk region. Symptoms commonly mimic influenza and arthritis, and may develop into serious neurological or cardiac conditions.

I am so thankful for this company! I got my first tick bite this past summer and was really concerned and uncertain about what I should do. I didn’t want to take antibiotics if it wasn’t necessary, but I also didn’t want to not take action if the tick actually happened to have Lyme’s or some other disease. So I started searching online, and thankfully I found TickCheck! This was the first tick testing company that I could actually call and speak to a representative over the phone! All the other ones were online only. I personally feel so much more comfortable speaking to an actual person, since I would be able to ask questions and make sure it was a legit company. When I called, I spoke to a lady named Nij. She was extremely knowledgeable and very patient. I had many questions and concerns, and she answered all of them! After speaking to her, I felt at ease, so I went ahead and put in an order to have the tick tested. The results came back way before the estimated time, so I was extremely grateful and relieved! This company went above and beyond from start to finish, and I would DEFINITELY recommend them! As a matter of fact, if I or anyone else I know gets bitten by a tick in the future, I know exactly who to call—TickCheck!😊
Using TickCheck was great! It was very easy to choose the level of testing and send the tick sample and track results. The service was very quick and they were great with answering questions quickly and completely. I would not hesitate to use again in the future.
I mailed off the lone star tick that got me on Saturday. By Monday they got it and started processing. By Tuesday I had preliminary negative results, and by Wednesday, FULL negative results. Very happy for the peace of mind and not having to take prophylactic antibiotics or waiting for blood results.
Quick service and turnaround time by very knowledgeable and friendly people. I will definitely use TickCheck again, but hope I never have to because that means I will have been bitten by another tick. Yikes!
Speedy results! And super customer service. When you're stressing about a tick test result, this really helps get clarity. Highly recommend.
