What are Ticks?
Ticks are small blood-sucking creatures. They can be as small as a poppy seed, or having fed, an adult can be the size of a pea or larger. Because they are so small, you may mistake them for a freckle, or a spec of dirt.
They inject an anaesthetic into the skin, so you’re not likely to feel them feeding. Ticks are blind and detect the animal through heat and carbon dioxide emitted by the body. Contrary to popular belief, ticks do not jump or fly.
They tend to either climb or fall on to their unsuspecting victim. They can hang around for a few hours before starting to feed, but once they start, they will do so until they are full, which tends to take between 5 and 7 days. There are a number of different species of tick found all over the world.
