About Florida Dog Ticks
Few people realize that Florida dog ticks are not actually insects, but rather much more closely related to spiders and mites. Florida dog ticks have eight legs, are parasitic and feed on the blood of various animals. Of all the species of Florida dog ticks, the brown dog tick and the American dog tick prove the most troublesome.

The brown dog Florida Tick is common throughout the state. These Florida dog ticks rarely attack animals other than canines. The brown dog tick's preference for such a common household pet makes home infestations by these critters quite common.

The American dog tick is also common in Florida, as well as throughout the United States. These Florida dog ticks frequently pester pets and humans alike. They are often encountered by sportsmen and those who work outdoors. Although Florida dog ticks have a strong preference for canines, they will feed on any warmblooded animal.
