Ticks in December?

Recommended Posts

I have picked 3 ticks off my dog in the last 2 days. I thought ticks were only about in the warmer summer months, this really surprised me. We are in south Wiltshire and it has been a terrible year for the ticks around here.

Is anyone else still finding them?

Hi , I know the cold doesn’t kill them I mean at least they hide away and are dormant and not looking to feed

I get them all year round.

Frost doesn't kill them. They can survive below zero temperatures. 

They are less active in the cold but they are still there.

Was always pulling the blighters off our old springer, but only during the summer/early autumn. We now have a new pup, he has only been out in the garden so far and is already getting ticks.
