Tick Behaviors and Dangers
While they are unlikely to infest a home, ticks are very common in backyards, parks, forests and other outdoor areas. The largest danger that ticks present is the ability to spread diseases such as Lyme. Because tics live in dense, plant-rich areas they are difficult to see and can attach themselves to a host with no warning.
