According to naturalist Debbie Hadley for About.com, ticks are most commonly found in warm areas where they are able to easily hide, such as within the hair, behind the knees, between the legs, under the arms and sometimes in the belly button. Ticks hide on the body to keep warm and go undetected so they are able to feed for longer periods of time without being noticed.
