Description:This pine squirrel, Tamiasciurus hudsonicus, is a host to both fleas and ticks.
Wild animals were investigated during a 1975 Plague and Colorado Tick Fever Study. Controlling wild animals and their flea and tick parasites around places where people live, work and play is important in preventing human disease.
