Facts About Ticks
Ticks cannot fly or jump, they can only crawl. Ticks generally hang out on bushes or grass waiting for a host to come along. When a tick attaches itself to a host it will slowly feed on the blood until it falls off or is removed. The diseases ticks can carry can be very harmful, even fatal. Symptoms from tick born illnesses can be headache, chills, muscle aches, and fever.
