Tick app developed at UW Madison

(WKOW) — If you like to be outdoors and you have concerns about ticks, there’s a new app that can help.

It’s called the “Tick App” and it was designed by researchers at UW-Madison to help gather information about where certain ticks may be across the state.

Users will be able to use it to better identify ticks and learn how to remove them.

If you find a tick on yourself, you can send a picture of it through the app, and researchers will provide you with information on what to do next.
