Been trapping a while and donít remember seeing this before it looks like a bunch of ticks around the mouth area on a few beaver caught this year. Anyone ever see or know what it is? [Linked Image]

It sure looks like ticks, but I'm surprised to see such a large number in one small area. Did you look closely to see if they were actual ticks or jut some kind of wart like growth?

Didnít think theyíd like beaver with all the water time. Just the mouth? Are those different types of tick?

I pulled out some of my notes I took on beavers in a class and found that beavers can be infected with the bacterial disease tularemia, which is transmitted by ticks and biting flies as well as contaminated water. According to my notes, its not uncommon for a beaver to be infested with ticks or fleas to the point of making the pelt worthless.

I have been starting to find quite a few ticks on beaver here in ontario. Most of the ones I see are in the ears.

Beaver do travel and can pick up ticks any time the weather is warm and they are out of the water , in the spring I get them full of fleas sometimes.

I've caught 1000s of beaver and never seen a tick on any of them. Fleas yes but ticks no.

I posted last year about a beaver I caught in Chippewa County in April that was crawling with deer ticks on the back and neck most were embedded I couldn't even hardly get a comb through the fur. It seems like almost all Beaver have the small fleas and other assorted bugs on them at times. I caught my first beaver in 1967 and my last one was last week with many in between. The one I caught in Chippewa County is the only one I've ever seen with ticks on it. This was several years ago with a real mild spring in Wisconsin. When I got to the truck at that particular spot with the beaver I too was crawling with deer ticks just from walking 50 yards through the brush to my truck

I had a beav with a tick in its ear this year. I also ended up with one on myself after a night of skinning

one of the common ticks found on beaver is in the Genus[b] Ixodes banksi[/b][/i]

a couple of years ago Boco got one beaver with some and sent it through to the Canadian Tick experts and they confirmed it.

Being in the Genus[i] Ixodes
one should always be careful about some of the diseases they carry

Ixodes have a different front mouth piece that extends forward but is usually broken off because of the way they "glue" then attached

Just caught a beaver doing ADC work that had two spots on its back with the same tick's. Both spots had a circle of ticks about an inch in diameter maybe 20-30 ticks in each spot. They where full and white like that. Caught a second one from the same stream with no ticks and was shocked figured it would be covered since they where a mating pair from last year. Certainly looked like pale beaver ticks when I searched it up on the internet.

I have caught my second beaver in a lifetime of beaver trapping that was infested with Beaver ticks just like the one shown in the pictures on this thread. This beaver was also caught in Chippewa County Wisconsin in an area I normally do not trap but was doing damage control trapping. The beaver was around 35 lb and should have weighed considerably more but was very sickly looking and I did not skin it. I think it was a loan Traveler and have not caught any more at this site.
