Ticks

Ticks in Tucson

Ticks are small arachnids related to spiders that feed on the blood of animals.
They are commonly found in wooded areas, where they can attach themselves to animals or people who brush against them. Ticks can transmit diseases like Lyme Disease. In addition, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Tularemia are transmitted by their hosts.

Types of Ticks

There are many types of ticks, all of which can seriously threaten your health. Therefore, knowing what type of tick you have been bitten by is essential to getting the proper treatment.

The most common type of tick in the United States is the Deer Tick. Deer Ticks are small, dark brown or black, and have round bodies. They are often found in wooded areas and can attach themselves to humans or animals.

Another common type of tick is the Dog Tick. Dog Ticks are larger than Deer Ticks and have flat bodies. They are usually brown or red and are often found on dogs or in areas where dogs frequent. The third type of tick is the Lone Star Tick. Lone Star Ticks are small, reddish-brown, and have a white spot on their back.

Tick Bites

If you find a tick on your body, don’t panic. Although ticks can carry diseases, there are simple steps you can take to remove the tick and reduce your risk of infection.

Ticks are small, spider-like creatures that feed on the blood of animals and humans. They’re usually found in wooded or grassy areas and can attach themselves to your skin without you even knowing it.

If you think a tick may have bitten you, you should first check your body for any sign of the creature. Ticks are often found around the waist, under the arms, or in hair. Once you’ve found a tick, you should use tweezers to remove it gently. Be sure not to twist or squeeze the tick’s body, as this can cause the mouth parts to break off and remain in your skin.
