Found a new insect evacuating a cooling carcass of a Roe doe I shot on Saturday. The critters do not appear to be ticks because: They do not attach to the skin, but are deep in the fur. They have a thorax and abdomen. Biggest are 5mm long. Speckled brown colour, a few bronze only. They can jump - carrying a carcass at arms length left me with 3 on my clothing. Circa 20 on a small Roe. What is it? Something to do with the very warm weather we had until a week ago? Any cause for concern? Second thing. Due to my DIY prowess, my butchery room next to the garage has morphed into a spangly utility room with underfloor heating, washing machines etc. I now have to think about clothes etc getting a tick and causing a drama.... I need to hang carcasses with fur attached as I am usually away for 4-5 days at a time. I have a very large transport tray which I put underneath with water in to catch falling critters - but these jumping insects can swim. What can I add to water that will kill ticks etc stone dead, but is completely odourless and will not taint meat?
