Ticks and Lyme Disease
Published on: 3/28/2012 12:00 AM

The Nevada County Agriculture Department can identify a tick to determine

If it is the specie that can carry Lyme's disease.  Carefully extract the tick, including the head, and place in a ziploc bag with a moist cotton ball.  Partial ticks are difficult to id with any certainty.​

The Placer County Public Health Laboratory can test ticks for Lyme disease. To test a tick, please contact the Placer County Laboratory at (530) 889-7205.
