How To Identify Ticks
Ticks are parasites that live in woods and areas with a significant amount of vegetation. Different species of ticks are different colors but all species are smaller than one cm. Ticks can reproduce fast. Females may deposit up to 3500 eggs in the ground at one time. After 30 days, these eggs will hatch which means your tick problem will only get worse as time goes on if you do not do something about it.
Ticks do not discriminate when it comes to a host. Ticks feed on the blood of mammals, birds, and reptiles. This means that ticks will feed on your dog, cat, and even you! Ticks cause diseases in the hosts that they infect. They do this by burrowing into your skin with their mouth. These bites can cause skin irritations and negative long-term health affects.
