You'll want to remove them ASAP.
Unlike fleas, ticks don’t jump onto their hosts, which can be animals or humans. Rather, they wait in the grass or in the woods before they latch on, the American Kennel Club (AKC) reports. They can survive a wide range of climates, making them even harder to get rid of, which just means that you have to keep an eye on them all year-round. You do, however, have to act fast when you see them because they can carry diseases like Lyme disease, babesiosis, and ehrlichiosis. Disease transmission can happen a couple of hours after the tick has latched on, making it even more important to learn how to get rid of ticks.
Another important fact to remember is that ticks only reproduce when they’re feeding, and one single female tick can lay from 3,000 eggs to 20,000 eggs.
