The UMass Amherst Laboratory of Medical Zoology (LMZ) tests ticks to determine whether or not they carry the pathogens that cause Lyme Disease and ten other tick-borne pathogens. All species of ticks do not carry all of these pathogens. For information useful in the preliminary idenfication of ticks, you can visit URI Tick Encounter.
