Tick Facts

Ticks belong to the arachnid family. Ticks grow eight legs in adults, while young ticks have six. Ticks, which are blood-feeding parasites, are commonly found in tall grasses and shrubs, where they wait to attach themselves to a passing host. Ticks can only be transported by physical contact. Ticks do not fly or jump, but they can fall from their perch onto a host. While ticks are more active in warmer weather, they can attack any host at any time. Ticks thrive near water where warm-blooded animals drink.

The tick is second to the mosquitoes’ threat of introducing diseases to humans. Ticks are generally not born with disease agents, but instead, acquire them through various feedings. Lyme disease, the most common tick-borne disease, is the most well-known. Lyme disease can be characterized by symptoms such as fever, headaches, fatigue, depression, and a characteristic skin rash. Most cases of Lyme disease and its symptoms can be treated with antibiotics. If left untreated, symptoms can spread to the heart, joints, and central nervous systems.
