Abstract: Ticks can parasitise every vertebrate class and are distributed worldwide. They are both economically and medically important, as some species may transmit pathogens to wild and domestic animals, and in some cases to humans. This study aimed to collect data on the tick species that occur locally and to gather information on aspects of their occurrence and host associations.
