Ticks are tiny blood-sucking creatures who require a host to feed off of and survive. These parasites can commonly found in shrubs and tall grass, where they patiently await the opportunity to latch on to a host to feed. Young ticks have six legs, developing two additional legs once they reach adulthood. Generally they are relevant in size to that of a sesame seed. Males and females differ in color; the males being black while the females have a red abdomen with a black plate near their head. Ticks do not jump or fly, though they have been known to drop from a perch onto the desired target. Ticks rely on a variety of factors including temperature and day length when searching for a host. Unfortunately there are certain diseases associated with tick bites. A few of them include: Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and Tick-borne meningoencephalitis. As carriers of dangerous pathogens, they are targeted by numerous tick control products on the market.
