how long can a tick live without a host

Report as

It depends on the type of tick. American dog ticks are known to last up to two years without a blood host while brown dog ticks can last for 200 days. Ticks are parasite responsible for causing Lyme disease. Here's the link for more information: http://ipm.ncsu.edu/srurban/CHAP8/TICKS/tickmain.htm.
