UK Tick Threat Map

This interactive tick map, created with the results from last year’s Big Tick Project survey, is a great way to help keep your pet protected. Because even if you live in a low risk area, the widespread prevalence of ticks in the UK and the active nature of your pets puts them at risk of exposure. Use the map to search for the types of ticks and tick-borne diseases that are prevalent in different areas across the UK. Simply add your postal code below and uncover the tick risks near you.
