    Ticks on roe

    This tick was on the roe buck I shot this morning (along with 7 of his friends, but they didn't want to be photo'd). Thought I'd post a picture.

    Yes, we get ticks and keds on the roe and muntjac down here. I posted the photo as a couple of people had asked for shots of pests on deer, I guess to 'recognise the enemy'

    over here in Bavaria every roe has ticks; there are years with extremely many of them... i remember having 15 or 16 of them about 4 years ago during summer
    obviously there aren`t as many in the UK!?
    i wouldnt miss them if we didnt have them

    I did quite intensive work on tick infestations on deer a few years back.

    Numbers of ticks varied from species to species ,

    Sika most prevalent then red then roe [generally]

    Average number of ticks on roe - 850 [all 3 life stages, larvae,nymph & adult]

    we did take 7000 of a sika stag. and have had 5000 of a roe buck.
