Pacific black legged tick

Back

These small ticks are often reddish with black legs. They commonly wait in tall grass or brushy areas for a mammal host to pass by, then latch on to bite and drink the host’s blood. These ticks are a prime transmitter of Lyme’s disease, making them a serious pest. Although they are unlikely to invade your home, they can be a problem if your property has large areas of brush, untended grass or dead plant material.
