What Are Ticks?

Ticks are tiny arachnids. They feed on the blood of animals and humans and may live in close association with their hosts. They are part of the larger informal category of biting pests. Ticks attach themselves for some time and then drop off their host to lay eggs. They require a blood meal at each stage of life to grow.

They are commonly found in wooded or grassy areas. The female tick must engorge herself with blood to obtain the nourishment necessary to produce the thousands of eggs she lays. Despite the many eggs produced, only a tiny percentage will mature. Ticks do not embed their entire head into a host, only the mouthparts. The tick will inject an anti clogging agent to keep the blood from clotting.
