I spoke to a friend whose GD had recently been to a Birthday Party, part of the garden had been left as a Wild Flower area and the children had been playing in the long grass.
When the child returned home the mother found what she thought were a couple of tiny seeds on the GCs legs, She used a magnifying glass as she couldnt brush them off, it turned out it was ticks.
As the mother was a nurse she knew that she didn’t have the correct tool to remove them so she took the GD to the nurse at the surgery and they removed 15 ticks from the childs body, even from the anus. They gave her the tweezer type tool for future use. Yuk yuk yuk!
Please check children when they come in from your garden, maybe brush them down, but certainly check when they are in the bath.
I always thought that it was sheep that spread ticks but it can be rabbits or hedgehogs too.
