Ticks

Ticks

Ticks differ in color. The larvae may be as small as 1 mm while adults, (if engorged with blood) may be over 1 cm in length.

Most have a hard body shell and an elongated mouth. A tick’s lifecycle takes two years to complete. Adult female ticks drop off their hosts; they lay over 2,000 eggs in the spring. Females die once they lay eggs in the early spring; adult males die after they mate in fall.

Ticks are usually found in highly woody or vegetated environments; most need moisture to survive. They can be found in tall grasses, leaf litter, and trees; ticks do not fly or jump.

Most ticks consume the blood of mammals, reptiles and birds; pathogens may be passed through each of the four lifecycles. Most cases of Lyme disease are transmitted by the bite of an infected blacklegged tick in the summer or spring. The most common indication of a tick is the sighting of the pest itself.

  • Be sure to remove leave litter, and clear tall grasses and brush.
  • Mow the lawn frequently.
  • Don’t keep old furniture, trash or mattresses in your yard which may give ticks a place to hide.
  • Discourage unwelcome wildlife which may carry ticks (deers, raccoons, stray dogs) from entering your yard by building fences.
