The Signs of a Tick Infestation
Ticks are a common problem for homeowners, and they can quickly become a nuisance if left unchecked. One of the most obvious signs of a tick infestation is finding ticks on yourself or your pets. Ticks are small, oval-shaped insects that feed on the blood of humans and animals, so if you notice them on your skin or clothing, it's a clear indication that they're present in your home. Additionally, ticks can be difficult to spot since they tend to hide in dark, moist areas like under furniture, in carpets, and on bedding.
Another sign of a tick infestation in your home is finding tick eggs or larvae. These small, white or brownish specks are often found in areas where ticks are known to live, such as tall grass, wooded areas, and animal burrows. If you spot these eggs or larvae in your home, it's likely that there are adult ticks nearby.
