Tick Season is Here!
Ticks can spread multiple diseases at one time.
When ticks bite, they can stay latched on for 2-3 days. It take's about 24 hours of this to transmit disease.
Ticks don't jump or fly. They grab on to a passing host or drop from their perch!
Ticks need to feed on blood through all life stages.
Only 90 of 900 tick species are found in North America. Even less of these transmit disease.
Ticks can survive without food for 200 days.
Some tick species survive for only 2 months while others can live up to 2 years.
