    Here in the Black Forest area of S.W. Germany the Ticks are most active in Spring and Autumn Hence i dip my stock in late summer and the last days of winter.

     It was the same times in N Wales  at Blackrock Porthmadog where we lived and worked previously to us settling here in Germany though.

    Tick infestations are usually seasonal in the UK between March and June, and again from August to November, but there is still a risk of picking them up all year round..... unless you protect your dogs from getting them...... my dogs have never had any and are around sheep, but I use neem oil on their coats and neem powder sprinkled on their food for the last 30 years....

      If using neem,(oil ONLY extenal & powder internal)  protects them from ALL parasites, no flea treatment, no wormers, Half teasp daily for 1st month, then 1 teasp wkly & oil once a wk as a grooming finish ...and you can make shampoo from the oil
