American dog ticks, Brown dog ticks, Black-legged (deer) ticks, and Lone Star ticks are the four most common tick species found in New England. Infestations have been on the rise here over the past few years, which is a concern for pest professionals and homeowners alike. Ticks not only cause discomfort and irritation, they are carriers of diseases such as Lyme disease and HGE (Human Granulocytic Erlichiosus.) Ticks cannot hop or fly and must latch on to their targets from elevated surfaces such as tall grass and overgrown vegetation, making areas on the exterior of your home susceptible to infestation.
