Outdoor Ticks


About Outdoor Ticks:

Ticks are small arachnids, performing most of their life cycles on their hosts when feeding, as bloodsuckers. They are typically found on humans and mammals, yet can be harboring in other places around your home, or in trees. Ticks are part of the arachnid’s family.

Where to Look for Ticks Outside:

Long Grass, Old debris and furniture in the yard. Garbage on the side of the home can often become a habitat. Keep an eye out for other mammals such as mice, deer and birds such as pigeons that may carry ticks.

Note: Ticks may also be found on other mammals including birds and sometimes reptiles and amphibians.

Mow you lawn regularly. Stack wood neatly in a dry area, preferably off the ground. Keep playground or patio equipment away from trees and edges. Keep unwanted carriers such as deer, mice, pigeons, and other mammals away. Remove old furniture and mattresses or trash in the yard that provide harborage.
