Ticks, of course, are not insects. They are easily distinguished by the shape of their bodies- no distinct head and sac-like appearance of the body. Adults and nymphs have eight legs, while larvae (sometimes refered to as "seed ticks") have six legs.
Control measures should be taken both indoors and outdoors. Special attention should be paid to the areas frequented by dogs. If you have any questions please contact any of the store locations listed below.
