Ticks are parasitic arthropods that are present in most regions of the world. They feed on the blood of mammals, birds, and occasionally reptiles and amphibians, with the potential of transmitting diseases such as East Coast Fever, babesiosis, anaplasmosis, cowdriosis and African Swine Fever in livestock. They also transmit Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, tularemia, African tick fever, etc. in humans.
