Based on the species, they can be different shades but all belong in the Family lxodidae. The average size is 1 cm long for an adult and larvae less than 1 mm in length.
The environment of your property can even depict almost any likely tick concerns; it’s more common to find them invading yards and buildings in the vicinity of thick wooded areas or considerably vegetated areas. A few kinds are not able to live without moisture content and both males and females require blood of reptiles, mammals and birds for their meal source.
Ticks feature a four-stage life cycle – (1) egg, (2) larvae, (3) nymph and (4) adult. They start with 6 legs during the larvae stage and have 8 legs while in the last stages. No matter what life cycle stage, ticks require blood to live. They also transport particular disease-causing pathogens and organisms can be passed on to their host.
