If you have been enjoying the outdoors and find a tick on yourself, a friend, family member, or pet, we'll gladly take the tick and have it identified for you. When you find a tick, wrap it in tissue, add a blade of grass, and seal it in a plastic bag.  Bring it to our office.  There is a $10 charge for the identification, we will complete paperwork, and send it to Iowa State University.
