Ticks

Ticks are ectoparasites that survive on a diet of blood, feeding on mammals and birds and sometimes amphibians and reptiles.
 

Geographical Region

Ticks are found throughout the world, but they thrive in warm, humid climates.
 

Natural Habitat

Ticks are found wherever their host species are prevalent, and in locations where it’s humid enough to stay hydrated.
 

Weather Conditions

Ticks like areas where the humidity is at least 85%, and can only bite hosts at temperatures above 45 degrees F.
 

Behavior

Because of their habit of ingesting blood, ticks are vectors of at least twelve diseases that affect humans and other animals.
 

Unique characteristics

Once they pierce skin and suck blood, ticks can transmit diseases such as Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever through their saliva.
