Ticks in Australia

Ticks are bloodsucking, external parasites that are often encountered by people during activities in the Australian bush.

There are many species known to attack humans and so samples should be referred to our expert laboratory for proper identification.

Over the last twelve years, the Department of Medical Entomology, ICPMR has been at the forefront of research into ticks and tick-borne disease, and has been the leading health authority for the provision of information on the ecology and control of this important public health pest.
