Ticks are obligate blood-sucking arthropods that parasitize vertebrates (Merino et al., 2005). They are important vectors and reservoirs of various pathogenic bacteria, protozoa, and viruses that can cause disease in humans and animals (Parola et al., 2001). Some of these agents are important emerging vector-borne pathogens for humans and are receiving growing attention. The Environmental Health Service from the Autonomous Government of Madrid launched a Wildlife Surveillance System in 2008 that complement the Surveillance in Domestic Animals already underway. Monitoring of ticks is included and is coordinated by these Systems through the cooperation of Forest Agents from the Environment General Directorate of Madrid and Municipal Animal Shelters, in order to establish a net of sentinel areas
