Ticks

Enter text

Ticks are small arachnids. Ticks require blood meals to complete their complex life cycles.

Ticks have the potential to transmit diseases such as Lyme disease. Most tick-borne diseases require the tick to be attached and feeding for several hours before the person gets infected.

InterestingsFactsTicks cannot jump or fly, but often climb grasses and shrubs in order to come in contact with people or animals walking by so they can attach themselves and feed on blood.

Ticks have a complex life cycle that includes eggs, larvae, nymphs, and adult male and female ticks.

Lyme disease is caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi and is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected blacklegged ticks.
