First Tick of the Year

As many of your are aware we live not very far away from one of the high-risk Tick areas of the UK, Thetford Forest. We have spent the last couple of weeks working on our Tick campaign for 2015 (more information on this very soon) and fortunately this has tied in with our first Tick spotting of the year.

This tick was found on Wednesday and had obviously been feeding for a number of hours as it was the size of a pea.

We speculate that the warmer weather generally over the winter and more specifically in the last two weeks may have triggered the start of the season, but we expect that there will be a lot more Ticks to come!

Unfortunately this is not a picture of the actual Tick we found (no camera was available at the time) but it too was bloated on blood.
