Ticks are very small creatures that are more closely related to spiders and scorpions than they are to insects. Ticks are found in countries all over the world and there are many different types. Ticks are parasites that live by feeding on the blood of other creatures. Although they are seen as pests, ticks are still important. Birds and insects eat ticks making them an important part of the food chain.
Ticks is part of the Bugs That Bite series, published by Weigl Publishers, August 2014.
