Alameda County has a great diversity of tick species, but there are only three species of commonly encountered ticks that may pose a public health risk. Adult and immature ticks can be found in many of the popular wooded areas, trails, and recreational parks throughout the county, especially in those that experience moderate temperatures and high humidity.
If you are bitten by a tick, please contact us or submit an online request for service. Our District will identify the tick and, if necessary, provide information where to submit the tick for disease testing. If the tick was collected from a property in Alameda County, we can conduct an on-site inspection and evaluation.
