Where Do Ticks Like to Hide?
Only a few species of ticks can survive indoors. These ticks often enter a home by attaching to humans or animals while they are outside. They like to stay latched to humans or dogs in order to maintain access to a blood source. Ticks are often found in areas of the body such as the groin, underarms, inside ears, in hair, inside belly buttons, and behind knees.
While some species of ticks can live indoors, most of them prefer to stay outdoors.
You may find ticks in these areas of your yard:
- Overgrown shrubs
- Piles of wood
- Storage sheds
- High grassy areas
- Piles of leaves
- Stone walls
- Bird feeders
