Ticks are nasty little insects that vary in size from pinhead- to lentil-sized and are generally dark brown in color. They are skin parasites that feed on the blood of their hosts, but unlike mosquitoes, ticks don't just bite and then go away, they bury their heads under the skin and attach themselves for many hours until they are bloated with blood and then they drop off.
