Tick Research Project

Partner logos

Tick bites and Lyme disease are always a concern when spending time outdoors. Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) and the University of Edinburgh are carrying out a citizen science project to improve predictive mapping of the risk of tick bites and Lyme disease in Scotland. The project involves recruiting volunteers to report the number of ticks or tick bites they have found on themselves (not on pets or vegetation) whilst performing outdoor activities, such as orienteering, camping or walking. 

The organisers are particularly keen for orienteers to participate in this project, given the range of different geographical areas and habitats used for the sport.  Joining this project will improve the understanding of the risk of tick bites in Scotland.
