my sister inlaw has just come in and said her sisters shoots have all been cancelled due to ticks ? she said there has been 2 or 3 in the dundee area cancelled from what she said a deer was found or shot and it had 1000's of ticks on it any one heard anything ?

T F i was trying to say that it would of been cancelled a month or so ago after the grouse counts were done, as they will then have a good idea on what numbers of young birds have survived the rain and tick etc......
I can well believe it...i've pulled more ticks of my dogs this summer than ever before. Pulled 4 off one terrier today and one of another. The spaniel's had loads. On one moor during one day i took 15 off it that hadn't dug in. I took 3 off it the following day that had. It does make me wonder if there is any correllation between wild bird numbers and the cessation of the traditional sheep dip http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub...

The only thing that will have any effect on the ticks is to give the farmers/estates a safe, cheap, effective and easy to use tick treatment for the sheep.
