Ticks are small, oval-shaped insects. They feed on the blood of non-domesticated
wildlife such as fox, deer, mice, and raccoons but also on pets and people.
Here in Arkansas, our pest professionals often encounter lone star ticks
and American dog ticks. Black-legged ticks, also known as deer ticks,
are also quite common. Ticks are often found in wooded or overgrown areas
as well as in tall grass and shrubs as they wait for a host animal or person.

Ticks enter homes and buildings usually on a pet or human host. They are
often brought onto your property by native wildlife. Ticks cannot jump
or fly but often wait in areas where they are most likely to find a host.
Also known as transitional areas or edge habitats, these areas include
where fields meet lawns and trails through tall grass or forests.
Are ticks dangerous?
Ticks are a serious health concern. They can carry and transmit disease
and illness to humans and domestic animals. The black-legged tick is a
major vector of Lyme disease in both people and pets.
