Bites recorded by app users

Recording tick bites in the tick diary and anonymously communicating this information provides valuable research data. The geographical bite location, site of the puncture wound on the body and the bite date will be used to better estimate the tick bite risk potential. The more tick bite data you as a member of “citizen science” report, the more reliable the research data. Reported bites are very valuable for monitoring and improving the existing tick risk map.

Thank you for your data!
