Ticks are important vectors of pathogens that cause human and animal disease. Pheromones play a role of fundamental importance in intraspecies communication. Here, Gordon Hamilton discusses how these chemical messengers play a role in mate location, host location, and survival in adverse conditions, and how manipulation of this chemical communication system may provide a potential method of tick control.
