Tick Tracker is Online

Have you found a tick on your child, your pet, or yourself? Report tick sightings on the Vermont Tick Tracker. Each spring, the interactive Tick Tracker goes live so Vermonters and visitors can post tick sightings. You can report the date, location, type of tick, and how many were seen. This helps spread awareness on how to Be Tick Smart and help prevent Lyme disease, anaplasmosis, and other tickborne diseases.
