Are Ticks Out In the Winter?

Jennifer Smith

Posted on January 22 2019

Some tick species are more active in the spring and summer months when it's warm and easy to find a host; however, some ticks are still found in the winter months.

No, ticks do not die just because it's cold outside but they do go dormant. They will latch onto hosts for warmth or seek shelter underneath leaves, wood, or twigs. Therefore, it's important not to move firewood too close to homes to avoid tick invasions at homes.

Ticks remain a year-long concern and should not be brushed off from mindsets because of cold weather. Keep tick keys nearby during outdoor adventures; and know the signs of Lyme Disease.
