A tick is a parasite that – often unnoticed – penetrates the skin of animals and people and is filled with blood. They live in tall grass and between leaves. Ticks can transmit Lyme disease.
Ticks are more active at high temperatures. In the coming days, the temperature can rise to 20 degrees, about five degrees warmer than normal for this time of year.
So far, the number of tick bite reports has been comparable to a normal season start. “It is therefore not the case that suddenly no tick bites are reported anymore due to the corona measures,” says NatureToday.
