Ticks are tiny pesky insects mainly present in shady, wet, brushy, wooded, or grassy locations. Ticks usually do not fall from trees, fly, or jump; myths that crop up simply because they can often be discovered biting up high on our bodies. They cannot jump or fly and generally climb onto a host from the ground, shrubbery, or low dangling branches. Ticks have a complex, 2-3 year lifecycle. The perimeters of woodlands and foliage litter are high-risk.
