How Ticks Move

Ticks neither fly nor jump. Lacking the anatomical ability to perform either physical function, the pests resort to latching onto their hosts as means of traveling long distances.

Where Are Ticks Found?
Ticks hide in tall grasses and cling to animals or humans as they pass. Hosts may then inadvertently bring them indoors, which can lead to infestations.


If a property becomes infested with ticks, individuals should contact professionals to remove the pests.
