TICKS AND LYME DISEASE

  • Ticks carrying disease are found across the UK in both town and countryside and in many parts of the New Forest.
  • Ticks are most active from March to October, but they can also be active on mild winter days.
  • Not all ticks are infected – infection rates in any place varies from zero to about 15%.
  • Ticks can be very small and can go unnoticed.
  • You will not feel a tick attach to you, so check your skin and that of children.

For further information on what to look for, how to reduce the risk from ticks and what to do if you think you have been bitten have a look at this NFDC Lyme Disease leaflet or visit the Lime Disease Action website
