Black-legged ticks, also called “deer ticks”, are a common pest around the Pontiac Lake State Recreation Area and the Highland Recreation Area in White Lake Twp.
Black-legged ticks can live for several years and take 2 or 3 blood meals during that time, depending on whether they’re male or female. Females take one more blood meal as adults to get the protein and other nutrients needed to produce their eggs.
The most common places to find these ticks are along trails in wooded areas, or near the edges of wooded areas. While their preferred hosts are mice when they’re young and deer as adults, they’ll feed on most large mammals including humans as adults.
Homes with yards that border a wooded area and outdoor pets like dogs are the most at risk for these pests. Black-legged ticks can transmit multiple diseases as nymphs and adults, including Lyme Disease.

Mosquitoes need water to reproduce so we often get calls about them from homes near White Lake, Pontiac Lake or other lakes here in town.
Mosquitoes are well-known for being able to use even the smallest amounts of standing water to complete their life-cycle. Sometimes they’ll even use hollows in trees that collect rain water!
While adult male mosquitoes live on plant nectar and don’t bite, females need the protein and nutrients in blood to produce their eggs so they definitely do. They are able to detect carbon dioxide and other chemicals that mammals produce to home in on potential victims.
