American Dog Tick



The adult American Dog tick feeds on a wide variety of medium to large size mammals, such as dogs, cattle, deer, raccoons, and opossum.

The immature stages may feed on these same hosts but prefer to infest smaller mammals such as meadow mice, squirrels, and chipmunks.

All stages of the American Dog tick will also feed on humans if given the opportunity.
