If a blacklegged tick is identified, staff will consult with you on next steps.
There is no cost for tick identification.
In Niagara, blacklegged ticks have often been found in the Wainfleet bog, Mud Lake in Port Colborne and 12 Mile Creek Trail in St. Catharines. However, it is possible to find blacklegged ticks outside of these areas too. Remember to protect yourself no matter what area you are in.
