Depending on the type, ticks can be various shades and belong to the family ixodidae. They are not very large in size with a mature tick getting close to 1 centimeter in length (smaller than a sunflower seed) and the larvae is generally under 1 millimeter in length. Indianapolis experiences several different tick types which includes the American dog tick and the deer tick.
Some properties are at a higher risk of developing a tick infestation. For example, if your home is located close to a heavily wooded area or substantially vegetated area you could have ticks invade your yard and property.
Certain tick varieties demand a specific amount of dampness to survive, in addition to blood for meals; through pets or humankind.
The life-cycle of ticks involves four different phases. The eggs, larvae, nymph, and adult. In the larvae stage they have 6 legs and through the remaining two phases they have 8 legs. Every single stage will require blood for their meals. A number of bacteria and pathogenic agents may cause illnesses if given to a host.
