Eastern Black-legged in the Bronx.
Lone Star on Staten Island. Early instar, this tiny beast.

And here’s an American Dog Tick found at Four Sparrow Marsh years ago, the only Brooklyn location I’ve spotted a tick so far. These are the big three species in NYC. There’s also a Groundhog Tick, too?

    I must live in a tick metropolis. My cat Ollie, has brought 3 bloated ticks home this spring; removed successfully. Medication applied, much earlier than other years! We live in the Southern Tier of New York, Corning (Tickville).
