How to Identify Fleas & Ticks

To identify fleas, look for a tiny, skinny insect that is less than a 16th of an inch. Ticks, on the other hand, have eight legs and can be almost a quarter-inch when fully engorged in blood. Look for fleas that are jumping, as opposed to ticks that rarely move, with help from a certified exterminator and arborist in this free video on pest control.

What Are Ticks?

Ticks are eight-legged spider-like creatures that feed on blood from humans and animals. They often transmit dangerous diseases, such as tularemia, Rocky Mountain spotted fever and encephalitis. Wear long sleeved shirts and pants to prevent getting a tick with advice from a certified exterminator and arborist in this free video on pest control.

When Do Ticks Lay Eggs?

Ticks lay eggs by getting fully engorged on blood, climbing up a tree, shrub or building, and laying between 1,000 and 3,000 eggs. Once the eggs hatch, the ticks will look for an animal to fall onto and feed on.
