Deer Tick

Deer Tick

  • This thick-bodied tick can be found in areas throughout the U.S. Like all ticks, the Deer tick can be a potential vector for disease for both animals and humans.
  • It derives its name from its propensity of parasitizing white-tailed deer.
  • An engorged tick looks quite different from an unfed tick featured in the picture to the left.
  • After feeding the body will swell and be prominently a gray-blue color.
