About Us

LYME-AID was started in 2010 in collaboration with the Northeast Wildlife DNA Laboratory. LYME-AID kits are intended to provide individuals with a convenient means of properly removing ticks and the option to have any ticks they discover tested for the presence of the bacteria that causes Lyme disease. LYME-AID kits are unique because they are associated with accurate molecular laboratory testing that directly identifies the DNA of the pathogen associated with Lyme disease infections. LYME-AID is committed to providing educational information on tick-borne diseases to increase awareness on these issues.
