What is the lifecycle of a Tick?
Ticks have four stages to their life cycle: egg, larvae, nymph, and adult, taking up to three years to fully develop. Throughout these years, most ticks feed on three different hosts. Once the eggs hatch, they become larvae and the larvae feed on the first host, which is typically a bird or a rodent, for several days before they detach and fall back on the ground. The larvae then transform into nymphs, which become active in the spring and begin to look for their second host – a rodent, pet, or human and feed, repeating the process of detachment and molting. Once the tick enters the final stage of its life cycle, which occurs during the fall, both male and female ticks will look to feed on their third host, usually a rodent, deer, dog, cat, or human. Once the tick is well-fed, it detaches, falls to the ground, and the males die. Female ticks, however, live through the winter and lay eggs in the spring before dying, completing the life cycle of a female tick.
