Abstract

The paper presents the results of the study of the distribution and seasonal dynamics of ixodid ticks in certain locations and farms of the Almaty, Kyzylorda and Turkestan regions. The results of the study show that the following genera are prevailing in animals and natural biotopes: Hyalomma (H. detritum, H. axiaticum, H. plumbeum, H. scupense and H. anatolicum), Ixodes (Ixodes ricinus), Rhipicephalus (Rhipicephalus rossicus) and Dermacentor (Dermacentor marginatus and Dermacentor pictus).
