White-tailed deer are the favorite hosts of deer ticks. In the warm months beginning from March-May, and in cooler months from August-November, when deer become extremely active, deer ticks thrive. As deer enter backyards in search of food, deer ticks and tick-borne diseases, such as Lyme disease, follow – and they do not go dormant – even in the wintertime. They will remain active in search of a warm-blooded host as long as temperatures are above freezing.
