Enter an address or place name in British Columbia to determine if it is a risk area for Lyme Disease .

Areas that are not highlighted in red are unlikely to have ticks capable of carrying the bacteria that causes Lyme Disease. Areas in red indicate where these ticks are known to or can potentially exist. Despite the known or potential presence of ticks in these areas, the risk of Lyme Disease in BC is low (less than 0.5 cases per 100,000 population and 0.2% tick infection rate) compared to the high endemic rates in northeastern United States (29 cases per 100,000 population and 40% tick infection rate). Risk map based on ecological niche modeling using observation data from field sampling and clinical submissions, and 10 environmental predictor data layers (vegetation, temperature and precipitation).
