How To Identify Ticks

  • Ticks are small, blood-feeding arachnids, often no larger than a sesame seed before feeding.
  • They can vary in color from brown to reddish-brown and black, depending on the species.
  • Common types in South Carolina include the Lone Star Tick, American Dog Tick, and the Blacklegged (Deer) Tick.
  • They have a flattened oval shape before feeding and become engorged and rounded after feeding.
  • Ticks are often found in wooded, grassy, or brushy areas and can attach to hosts passing by.

Ticks Habits

  • Ticks attach to mammals, birds, and sometimes reptiles and amphibians to feed on their blood.
  • They are more active in warmer months but can be a threat year-round in South Carolina.
  • Ticks do not jump or fly; they typically reach their hosts by direct contact.
  • After feeding, ticks drop off their host to lay eggs or develop to their next life stage.
  • Ticks are known carriers of various diseases, which they can transmit to their hosts.

How To Prevent Ticks

  • Keep grass and vegetation trimmed to reduce tick habitats near your home.
  • Use tick repellent on clothing and skin when spending time outdoors.
  • Perform regular tick checks on yourself, your children, and your pets after outdoor activities.
  • Create a barrier between wooded areas and your lawn with gravel or wood chips to limit tick migration.
  • For comprehensive tick control solutions, contact Marett Pest Control for professional assistance in safeguarding your property.
