The Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station will accept ticks only from state residents. In West Haven, residents should submit ticks to our Health Department. The department will then submit ticks to CAES with a request for identification and/or testing for the causative agents for Lyme disease, anaplasmosis and babesiosis. More information at the CAES Tick Portal.
