Alberta Health Servicesí Submit-A-Tick Programme
To determine whether or not a tick carries lyme disease, Alberta Health Services has a tick surveillance program to monitor which ticks carry the disease. To learn more about the programme, see http://www.health.alberta.ca/health-info/lyme-disease.html.
How does the programme work? Take any ticks that you find to your closest Alberta Health Services-Environmental Public Health Office for analysis. See http://www.health.alberta.ca/documents/Tick-Surveillance-AHS-EPH-Offices.pdf for a list of offices across the province.
