Pest Details: Ticks

Ticks come in two varieties: American and Brown Dog (pictured at left). American ticks usually live outdoors but can be brought in by pets, mice and rats. These ticks are dangerous because they transmit serious diseases such as Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Lyme disease to humans. The adult dog tick is shaped like a flat tear drop. Generally, they are 1/8 - 3/16 inch in length and have 8 legs. When fully fed, the body stretches and changes from reddish brown to a more blue-gray.
