Abstract

Ixodes scapularis Say was the only species of tick found on white-tailed deer, Odocoileus virginianus, collected at Long Point, Ontario from October 1972 to August 1973. Adults were most abundant from September 1972 to April 1973. Larvae were found throughout the study period except during February. Nymphs were scarce during winter months but fairly common during spring and summer. Most adults were found on the neck and shoulders. Larvae occurred mainly on lower regions of the body and nymphs mainly on the head, shoulders, forelegs and brisket.
