Understanding which tick species Missourians interact with and where exposures occur can help inform and diagnose tickborne diseases. A statewide survey of tick and tickborne pathogens was conducted using citizen science. Missourians submitted 17,466 from April 2021 through November 2022. Eight tick specie were received, and at least two ticks were submitted from every county. These data provide tick distributions at the county level and identify patterns of direct tick exposure to humans.
