I've never heard of ticks in an urban environment, has anyone got any ideas. PS I burn't the f--kcers off with the end of my fag, was this the right thing to do?
> I've never heard of ticks in an urban environment,
I blame dogs.
Keep an eye on the area where you got bitten, if you start to feel ill with cold symptoms or you get some sort of strange rash(apparantly bullseye) then make an appointment to your doctor. Good luck!
It is rather strange though to get them in an urban environment, i blame birds!
They may not have been ticks that live in a rural environment, although sheep ticks (Ixodes ricinus) will live on hedgehogs and other small mammals which might be found in a pub garden. Other species will establish themselves in kennels or houses (mostly foreign imports).
Look up brown dog tick and particularly the spinous ear tick if you really want to make your skin crawl although there have been very very few reports of these ticks in the UK.
