Abstract [en]

New data are given on the tick fauna of The Faroe Islands. So far, three species of Ixodes arerecorded from the islands. I. uriae from Fratercula arctica, Uria algae and Rattus norvegicus;I. caledonicus from Fulmarus glacialis; and I. ricinus from Homo sapiens, Felis catus, Canisfamiliaris, Phylloscopus collybita and Oenanthe oenanthe. The possible regular presenceof I. ricinus on the archipelago is likely to increase the risk for transmission of tick-bornezoonotic pathogens, including Borrelia garinii, to humans.
