Ticks belong in the family Ixodidae and will vary in color subject to their type. Ticks aren’t very big in size with the mature tick growing to roughly 1 cm long (smaller than a sunflower seed) and the larvae is generally under 1 millimeter long. Long Beach suffers from a selection of usual tick varieties including the American dog tick and the deer tick.
Ticks are typically located where dense woods or very vegetated locations are. Specific tick species demand a certain quantity of moisture content to survive, and also blood for nourishment; through pets or humans.
The life cycle of ticks contains four different stages. The egg, then larvae, then nymph and finally, the adult. They start out with six legs but eventually grow to have eight legs. Each and every cycle requires blood for meals. Ticks that have a number of disease-causing pathogenic agents and bacteria can actually be given to their host.
