When is Tick Season in Austin?

Tick Control | November 13, 2018

When is Tick Season in Austin

Generally, tick season is during the warmer part of the year – Late spring, summer, and into fall, but here in the Greater Austin area, the climate is warm enough year-round that ticks can be active all year long. That also means that fleas are likely to be active all year long too as both pests share the same type of climate.

Types of Ticks

There are 20 or so species of ticks In the US and many of those live in Texas. As nasty as that might sound, only a few actually bite humans. You are most likely to encounter the American Dog Tick, the Brown Dog Tick, the Lone Star Tick, and the Deer Tick around Austin.

Natural predators of ticks are the opossum who actually eat them. So, while those animals come to the cat food dish, they are actually doing a service.

Tick Control

Ticks are often found on the ground but they will climb to the top of leafy plants in order to hitch a ride on deer and other animals, including humans. Once onboard they drill in and begin to snack. There is a wild myth that fire ants eat and control ticks and they might eat a tick here or there but they are by no means a biological control agent and certainly not worth the hassle they are to have fire ants in your yard.

The best way to control ticks is to keep your yard tidy. There are some drag-traps that will also catch ticks and you can use certain types of contact pesticides if you have a significant population of ticks in your yard, but contact pesticides do not discriminate. Bait also does not work on ticks as they are after warm blood.
