How to Identify Ticks and Tick Infestations
A tick looks like a tiny beetle and is usually red or brown in appearance. Here are a few other tips on how to identify ticks:
- Like spiders, ticks are arachnids, so adults will have eight legs. In their larval form, they will have six. If you capture a tick and confine it, it will crawl.
- Ticks cannot fly or jump.
- Ticks are flat and pear shaped, often compared to a poppy seed or sesame seed.
- Adult ticks are about an inch long.
- Ticks have a shield just behind their mouths.
Diseases Ticks Carry
Diseases such as Lyme disease, typhus, babesiosis, relapsing fever, Bourbon fever, and tick-borne meningoencephalitis are just a few of the dangerous conditions that ticks can spread. Ticks can not only harm you and other family members, but can put your pets in danger as well. Talk to your vet about putting your dogs and other house pets on a tick preventative pill, and make sure to do frequent tick checks on all members of the family if you live in wooden areas.
