Top News

Your stories… 

We’ve been talking to mums around the country to learn about their experiences of ticks. Read Jess’ story to find out why she’s tick aware:

My son picked up a tick on a family holiday in Devon and tested positive for Lyme’s. He got the bullseye mark and everything, it was very worrying. Luckily we got the course of antibiotics in time.

We’ve had confirmed cases from our local park in London, not just the wilds of Devon, so it is a concern. But we don’t want to stop walking in the woods! So I think it’s a great product. Keep up the good work!

We’ve been discussing tick activity with our friendly tick expert and can report that ticks are now thought to be active all year round in the UK. This is believed to be due to the warmer winters we are experiencing as a result of climate change. 

So it’s important to practice good tick prevention all year round…
