Update: Here is the link to the ECDC (European Center for Disease Prevention and Control) that gives tick distribution (as well as sandfly and mosquito). Just select the one of 4 tick species and it will show the distribution.

    • There are two ticks present in France (and Fontainebleau), and they are associated the wild boars that are present. They are Ixodes Ricinus and Dermacentor Reticulatus. I’ve posted the link for the European CDC that gives tick distribution for Europe.
