Tick Eggs and Humans

The good news is that ticks don’t lay eggs on humans or on any other animals. Adult female ticks only lay their eggs after they have filled up on blood and detached from the host.

The bad news is that tick eggs can still be a serious problem. If they detach from you or your pet inside your home, ticks lay eggs in your carpet or on your furniture. A single mother tick can lay thousands of eggs. When they hatch, thousands of tick larvae are all looking for hosts.
