Remove the tick from bag or container with a pointy tweezer.
Place the tick on a white background and make sure
you have good top lighting. Two-sided tape can help keep the tick from
moving so it’s easier to focus.
Move your camera or smart phone to focus on the tick. There are two different types of ticks that require different focus
If your tick is engorged, concentrate on the
face and shield area of the tick
If your tick is unfed, concentrate on the
entire top of the tick.
