I live in South Florida in a community that has been around more than 40 years and am not near the beach or Everglades. I am having a tick problem in my house as my dog has been having about 2 to 3 of them a day requiring removal. The ticks are brown with red legs and are pretty small. All but 1 tick I have taken off required tweezers. I had my yard sprayed for ticks but still have them in my house or on the dog. I was told to look for a tick nest but cannot find what a tick nest even looks like and have searched around my house but find nothing. Any thoughts?
