Tick maps

The vector distribution maps are published regularly on the website to provide the ECDC stakeholders and the general public with the most up-to-date information on vector distribution, showing the distribution of the vector species at ‘regional’ administrative level (NUTS3).

Tick species - Distribution maps

The map shows the current known distribution of the tick species in Europe at ‘regional’ administrative level (NUTS3). They are based on published historical data and confirmed data provided by experts from the respective countries as part of the VectorNet project.

Separate maps for the distribution of each of the following tick species are currently available:  Dermacentor reticulatus, Hyalomma marginatum, Ixodes persulcatus, Ixodes ricinus, Rhicephalus sanguineus, Ornithodorus spp

Join VectorNet and submit data

ECDC and EFSA, through the VectorNet network, continues to improve the data collection for the maps. VectorNet is looking for vector-borne disease experts who are interested in sharing data on the distribution of mosquito, tick, sand fly and culicoides vectors. Experts can contact VectorNet at VectorNet@ecdc.europa.eu  to join the network. They can also register and upload data to the common database through the VectorNet tool 

Please note that the maps do not represent the official view or position of the countries.
