Abstract : It is believed that the Common Red-backed Vole is the main source of HFRS in the Tula Oblast, and also that it is the chief host of I. trianguliceps in HFRS foci. During a period of 13 years, ectoparasites of almost 8,000 Common Red-backed Voles were investigated. This work was carried out at 2 stations located in the following different landscape-ecological localities: Rozhdestvensky Kar'yer with sporadic HFRS incidence - an insular forest characteristic of the forest-steppe zone in Tula Oblast (monthly observations from 1953 till 1961), and Shcheglovskaya Zaseka (monthly observations from 1961 till 1965), a wide-leaved grove on the outskirts of Tula - an active focus producing annual HFRS infection in the population.
