Our first set of tick maps are available at PetsAndTicks.com. I don’t think there are any great surprises so far, but it’s interesting to see where black legged ticks are being reported.
The Ontario map is copied below but the website has maps from submissions from across Canada.
- To answer a recent question…yes, we accept data submissions from outside of Canada but cannot accept ticks that have to cross the border in the mail. So, feel free to enter tick information from other regions.
More maps (with hopefully a lot more data) will be posted as the year progresses.
