Recommended Resources

While Tick Free NH offers many resources for the general New Hampshire public to educate themselves about tick prevention, protection, inspection and removal, we acknowledge that we are a collaborative of experts across professions in one state and that many other resources exist in New Hampshire, across the country and around the world. You will find many links to materials, websites, and videos created by other trusted organizations and partners in tick prevention.

Below is a short list of some other good resources we recommend!
