Tick

Color: Ticks can range in color from shades of brown to reddish brown and black. After feeding on its host for several days or weeks, they become engorged and can turn a greenish blue color.

Length: 1/16″ – 1/2″

The tick is an eight-legged relative of the spider. It must feed three times before hiding and producing up to 3000 eggs in a crack or crevice.

The tick can live without food for up to 200 days, waiting for a host, usually a dog, to supply a blood meal. Many serious diseases can be transmitted through ticks: Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Typhus, Lyme Disease, Relapsing Tick Fever and other disorders.
