My name is Tiffany Terp and I am currently a junior at the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse. I am majoring in Biology with a concentration in biomedical science. Currently, I am taking Biology 203 and as a requirement for the class we had to research an organism within our area and create a web page about it.

I chose to learn more about the deer tick because living in Wisconsin, the risk of obtaining Lyme Disease is high. I thought it would be beneficial to learn more about their feeding rituals hoping the awareness would help decrease my chances of coming in contact with Lyme Disease infected deer ticks. I also hope to spread the information on to other about how to avoid deer ticks.

If you have any suggestions, questions, or comment please feel free to contact me at


I also want to thank all of the different organizations and references for allowing me to use their pictures and information to enhance my web page.
