American Dog Tick (Dermacentor variabilis)

American Dog Tick (Dermacentor variabilis)

Despite its common name, the American dog tick may feed on a wide variety of hosts, including skunks, fox, cattle, raccoons, opossum, deer, squirrels, rabbits, chipmunks, and humans, in addition to canine species. The blood-sucking arachnids have four life stages, each of which must be accompanied by a blood meal in order for morphogenesis to take place.
