This variety in hosts, thereby, partly determines the number of samples needed to obtain reliable population estimators. In general, observations from host species that are both numerous and heavily parasitized will most likely provide the best relative estimates of tick abundance, and eventually density. This may not be true, however, if host populations fluctuate extensively, or if capture or inspection is difficult. Differences in stage-specific host associations further complicate this sampling problem.
