Thread: Counties where ticks are present?!

    Counties where ticks are present?!

    Hi chaps just wondering if there is a definitive list of counties or places where ticks are definitely present and a problem for stalkers in the UK?

    I am soon to start stalking in Cambs and wondered if I need to get a tick tool just in case,

    Cheers

    Every county has ticks, just some areas worse than others.

    North Yorkshire Moors rife, rare to see them in the Dales.

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    As Apache says there everywhere, on the New Forest and surrounding areas there a real problem. Obviously the risk is Lyme's disease, i guess a website like http://www.lymediseaseaction.org.uk/ may have a map of reported incidents through GP's and hospitals? If not its always worth a read for knowing the symptoms etc.

    You could pick one up tabbing across a field to get to the woods...
