Rated 3 out of 5 by from This review applies to the female slide Somehow the critical review I just posted for the female slide should have applied to the male tick slide instead. The female slide was well mounted, the male slide was not and should have been discarded. One other issue, though, is your labeling on both slides. You identify the species as Ixodes dammini, when the scientific literature uses the more common Ixodes scapularis. I've had a previous problem with your identification, which was flat-out wrong in this instance, your slide of cyanobacteria. It is identified as "blue-green algae," a common term but incorrect for educational purposes. As basic knowledge, students should learn that bacteria are not algae. I rated the female tick average, because educators should expect at $15 each a tick should not be squashed in the mounting process.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Most important structures destroyed in mounting In the mounting of the tick, the Palps and the Hypostome--the most important structures to cite in discussing tick bites and Lyme Disease--were squashed and split to the point of being useless under the microscope for educational purposes. Slide should have been discarded before being shipped. The only use for this slide is to show students without the microscope how small the tick can be. It was fortunate I ordered a male and female. The female was mounted as shown in your photo and was useful under the microscope (40x and 100x). These are expensive slides, and since I purchased two--$30 for one useful slide to talk about how this tick bites, clings, and spreads Lyme disease, quite prevalent in my area.
