Ticks in the UK

In recent years, ticks and the diseases they carry have become a rapidly growing problem across the UK.1, 3  In fact, in Great Britain the distribution of ticks is estimated to have expanded by 17% in the last ten years, and the abundance of ticks have increased at 73% of the locations surveyed by the Big Tick Project.2 This growing threat is thought to be due, in large part, to the warm, wet winters that the UK has been experiencing. This means that ticks are able to start their feeding earlier and for longer throughout the year.3 And this longer season of tick activity represents a great danger to us and the pets that we love so much.
