I'm not able to find any pictures on the internet of a tick species that has multiple yellow spots on it.

My daughter's fiance found a small black/dark brown tick-like insect attached to his lower abdomen.

It left a small red spot after removal. It has small, very distinct yellow spots on it.


Thank you for any help anyone may be able to give.

Strange!!!
Try here:
www.TickTexas.org
Click on the ticks on the first page. Maybe it's a Lone Star tick?

also look through treepatrol's links

Thanks Lymetoo & treepatrol,

I looked at these sites, but I don't see any ticks that look like the one that was attached to my future son-in-law's stomach.

My daughter actually saw the "tick" because he saved it, so that she could see it.

She also looked at the websites - but can't find any that look like the culprit.

He now has a little red bump where it was attached - he said he had to pull it off of his stomach - it was definitely attached....

I would try looking at pics of the spider family. I just did a search and there was many yellow spots spider sites.

Spider bites need to be watched. Many people are told by their docs that their bite is a spider bite and 10 days abx is all that's needed for the rash or bite.

Well, I wonder what that spider was feeding on before it feed on some human? Spiders carry some nasty bacteria, parasites and such.

Dolphin, it would be according to what the spider had been feeding on in it's nasty life. Here's a very experienced lyme literate doc list of some pathogens and spider.

Were the spots on the top of the tick or on the abdomen? Just curious. I have seen black widow spiders with several yellow spots rather than red on the abdomen, but spiders don't stay attached to the skin. Hiker

Well, if they saved the tick, why not take it in to their County Extension Agent and see if it can be indetified?

In the meantime, if it were me, I would be be on some natural Lyme/TBD preventative stuff. There have been several discussion about prevention recently.

Not sure what species of tick this is but it is yellow. Maybe you saw one of these with a mixture of markings.

Could it have been a weevil or a chigger?

Do you have a nearby university with an entomology department. I'd be interested myself to know if it was a tick. That was a smart young man for saving it.

A black ladybug with yellow spots can look like an engorged tick also.

Does it look at all like an American dog tick?

We've found a couple of ticks that don't look like any of the pictures--they aren't as round as Lone Star ticks and don't have the big white spot, but they have sort of a beige evenly spaced spotted pattern--like armour--look on the back.

They're smaller than brown dog ticks, which can have a random swirled sort of dark/light coloration, but they do have reddish brown legs, whereas the Ixodes types have black legs.

It's confusing, because male and immature adult ticks don't look exactly like the larger females (of any type) which are more likely to be in pictures.

imanurse,

Sorry it took me a while to check this out - What are these little buggers?!!

My daughter says that this IS what was on her fiance's abdomen!

Where did you find these pics? I wasn't able to find any that looked like these.
Thanks so much,
ArtnSoul

P.S. As for the Questions where I was - I apologize - life is really hectic lately - I now have a part-time job. (because I have to work - we need the money - [Frown] but it is taking it's toll) So, I have a lot of "down" time. There is no way that I could work full-time....

anyway - sorry for the lack of "presence"
