Species of Ticks Found in Texas; American Dog, Lone Star, Deer / Blacklegged & Brown Dog Tick
Ticks can be a real issue to the locals in the Greater San Antonio, Texas area. They are not only a nuisance and grotesque, but they can be harmful to your health and the health of your pets. Primarily, American dog tick, lone star tick, deer/blacklegged tick, and brown dog tick are the most common tick species found throughout Texas. Ticks do not leap or fly, but are excellent climbers, which is how they normally obtain their host. Not all ticks can transmit disease, but they potentially can transmit some pretty nasty ones.
Common Tick Borne Diseases
Ticks are excellent vectors for transmitting disease and tick-borne diseases are common. So common in fact, they are second only to mosquitoes as vectors of disease to humans! Ticks need to ingest a blood meal in order to transform to their next stage of development. Ticks can carry and transmit a wide array of pathogens, including bacteria, protozoa, spirochetes, nematodes, rickettsiae, toxins and viruses. In addition, a single tick bite can transmit multiple pathogens. Some of the many diseases transmitted by ticks to humans in the United States include:
Lyme disease, ehrlichiosis, babesiosis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, tularemia, tick paralysis and red meat allergy.
