In recent years, New Hampshire has had some of the highest incidences of Lyme disease in the United States. Lyme disease is caused by a bacteria carried by the Blacklegged tick.

The goal of Tick Free NH is to raise awareness about the risk of tick encounters and educate the public on how to avoid ticks and prevent being bitten by one.

Adult deer ticks ARE HUNGRY!

Adult blacklegged ticks emerge from the leaf-litter when temperatures hover above 40° and where there’s no snow-cover. These adults are more likely to carry and transmit the pathogen that causes Lyme disease than spring nymphs; they also carry anaplasmosis, babesiosis, B. miyamotoi and Powassan virus.

Everyone in New Hampshire is at risk of being bitten by a tick.

The best way to protect yourself and your family from ticks is to: Prevent them from being on your body, Check yourself, your children, and pets for ticks after being outside, and Remove any tick you find.
