You might know your pets pretty well but how much do you know about pests? There are flea and tick remedies galore in the market but each year can be challenging with how persistent these pests can be and at different times of the year. Because let’s be real here...flea and tick season is all year round and we’ve got to keep up with it!

So let’s take a look at the forecast for 2020 - for ticks specifically - with data pulled from Pests.org.

Pests.org does a fantastic job at providing regional information regarding ticks. When we visited their forecast page, we immediately knew - based on our own location - if we were going to have a rough time with ticks. Here’s what they have to say about the different regions and ticks.

NORTHEAST

For the northeast, the 2020 tick season began mid-April and is expected to die down in late October with an above average tick population. With how the northeast has concern of lyme disease, ticks aren’t fun to deal with. Here’s a list of some of the ticks in the Northeast.

  • Deer tick (blacklegged tick)
  • Brown dog tick
  • American dog tick
  • Lone star tick


SOUTHEAST

Just like the northeast, the 2020 tick season began in mid-April and expected to die down in late October, however the tick population expected has a slightly average thread level according to Pests.org. Here’s a list of some of the ticks in the Southeast.

  • Deer tick (blacklegged tick)
  • Brown dog tick
  • American dog tick
  • Lone star tick

MIDWEST

To those of you in the midwest, keep alert. Tick season is expected to be brutal for those in the midwest thanks to the warmer temperatures that are also expected to last longer this year pushing tick season into the fall. Here’s a list of some of the ticks in the Midwest with population and activity growth anticipated.

  • Deer tick (blacklegged tick)
  • Brown dog tick
  • American dog tick
  • Lone star tick

SOUTHWEST

For the southwest residents, your ticks are expected to stay in the desert states “with the Pacific coast more in line with previous years”. Because the southwest lacks humidity, ticks don’t thrive as well as they do in other locations despite the association with hotter temperatures. Here’s a list of some of the ticks in the Southwest:

  • Brown dog tick
  • Western blacklegged tick
  • Rocky mountain wood tick

NORTHWEST

This year, the summer temperatures are warmer than normal albeit it seems to be getting warmer with each summer that passes in the Northwest. Tick season is projected to end towards the end of October or early November. Here’s a list of some of the ticks in the Northwest:

  • Brown dog tick
  • Western blacklegged tick
  • Rocky Mountain wood tick
