$400 for all eight tests. That\'s sufficient motivation to avoid these bugs!

Or, send to the local health department office. Orange Cty examined my tick and sent it to Albany for testing and confirmation. Freebie!!

Did Orange City do the three tests that I got?, these are the main ones and for $50.00.

And they keep the DNA of the tick for further testing.

The first place I tried only tested for Lyme, and some other parasites can be worse, one Dr. I talked to said that the tests are a waste of time, unless you are going to do all the tests.

I have to keep checking myself periodically for 24 hours for ticks, it is becoming a habit. I find about three whenever I go bushwhacking on top of the hills.

Orange County, only did a microscopic ID for species. A positive on deer tick, so off to Albany went the tick for the testing. I was told they did a full screen. Not sure which of the remaining less common tick born diseases that screen includes.
Their exam ID was a female engorged enough to indicate that it had been attached for a minimum of 15 hours and that I should begin treatment. A few symptoms showed within a short period of time, with no tell tale bulls eye rash.
Zealous self examination, and early identification saved me from worse than some minor flu like symptoms, a short lived period of tunnel vision, some aches and pains, and a general loss of stamina that stayed with me for a little less than a year. whistle whew!
