The brown dog tick
Under ideal conditions the life cycle may be completed in about two months, however, under normal conditions, with a host present, there are usually 3 to 4 generations per year. Because larval and nymphal stages can live two months without feeding, and adults can live at least eight months with no host, infestations can persist long after dogs leave the premises.

What are a ticks natural enemies if any?
Ticks have many natural predators in the environment. Several wasp species will parasitize ticks, one species in particular (Ixodiphagus hookeri) has been studied quite extensively. The female wasp lays her eggs inside an engorged nymph. After the wasp eggs hatch, the larvae feed on the tick's internal tissues and then emerge, killing the tick in the process. Many species of spiders will also eat ticks if they can find them. Also, there are a variety of fungi and nematodes that also feed on and kill ticks while they are molting in the soil. Birds will certainly eat ticks that they encounter during foraging.
