Ticks and Lyme’s Disease – Public Health England Guidance (PDF download – 300KB)

Public Health England (PHE) monitors changes in tick distributions and investigates the drivers for these changes.

Help them monitor ticks by participating in their nationwide surveillance via the Tick Recording Scheme  where you can download a recording form to post with your tick specimens. You can send in any ticks you come across, which helps them to update their knowledge of British tick species, their spread across the country and detect unusual species.
