Facts About Ticks in Missouri

Ticks in Missouri are arachnids related to spiders and scorpions and are known for their blood-sucking habits on mammals, including humans. They are not only a nuisance but can also transmit serious diseases. Here are some key facts about ticks in Missouri:

  • American Dog Tick – The American dog tick is prevalent throughout Missouri. This species is typically found in grassy areas, fields, and along trails. These ticks carry diseases such as Rocky Mountain spotted fever and tularemia.
  • Lone Star Tick – The Lone Star tick is also commonly found in Missouri. It is known for the single white spot or “lone star” on the back of adult females. These ticks prefer wooded areas and are frequently encountered in parks and recreational areas. They are associated with diseases like ehrlichiosis and tularemia.
  • Deer Tick – Deer ticks are commonly found in wooded areas, grassy fields, and areas with thick vegetation. Adult female deer ticks are typically reddish-brown with dark brown or black shield-shaped bodies. They are known to transmit various diseases, with Lyme disease being the most commonly associated one.
  • Brown Dog Tick – While not as common as the other species mentioned, the brown dog tick is occasionally found in Missouri. It is more prevalent in warmer regions and can infest homes and kennels. This tick species primarily feeds on dogs and is a potential carrier of diseases such as canine ehrlichiosis and babesiosis.

Preventative measures against tick bites include avoiding tick-infested areas, using tick repellents, and conducting thorough checks for ticks after being in areas where ticks are common. Prompt removal of ticks can dramatically reduce the likelihood of disease transmission​. Consult a healthcare provider if you suspect a tick has bitten you or are experiencing symptoms of a tick-borne illness.
