Caught another one in a nuisance job. Small spring fed pond, the male was covered in them and the female did not have any on her. I would have expected both to be covered in ticks, small pond and one small lodge.

The beaver I caught with ticks a couple years ago was the only beaver I had ever caught in near 50 years of trapping that had ticks.
In the same year another trapper who has trapped as long as me and taken likely as many beaver,also caught his first and only tick infested beaver the same year.
What is interesting is the tick beaver I caught came from a different watershed than the one He caught.

It is a result of global warming,no doubt with new species of parasites moving north with the milder,shorter winters now.Limes (Tick bourne disease) has been moving north last few years also,itis now in Sudbury,a couple hundred miles south of here.


Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

Catching more and more beavers with ticks lately. A couple years ago our local health unit wanted me to send off 3 live ticks in various stages of engorgement to our National Micro-biology lab in Winnipeg MB. for Lyme testing...results came back negative for Lyme disease. They are very hardy. Caught an Otter this spring that had a tick on it, from the same pond I also caught beavers with ticks. The world is changing!

This one did not make the trip home. The couple I skinned in the winter where damaged, red/black marks on the leather and noticeable on the fur side. Plus they are a pain to deal with.

They are getting more reports of it in Southern Ontario according to the MNR, Climate change and a bad year was the words in the email.

All three this year where from different watersheds, spread out over at least 100KM.
