Ticks are smaller than a sunflower seed and vary in color depending on species. They have six legs in their larval state but develop eight legs as nymph and into adulthood. Unlike fleas, ticks will embed themselves on animal or human hosts for a period of time, often days. They feed on blood and must be removed from the host carefully once attached.
Ticks can become a serious problem for your family and pets’ health, and their wide-spread presence in the Northeast make them common in yards and parks. These outdoor pests embed themselves on a person or animal to feed for up to a few days, and they can transfer diseases such as Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. You must remove ticks very carefully if you find them on yourself, a loved one, or your pet.
