Unlike fleas, ticks cannot jump on pets but may climb on people or animals walking by. They are opportunist in this regard, attaching themselves and feeding on blood. However, just like fleas and other pests, ticks potentially transmit diseases to their host.
Most tick-borne diseases are not transferred immediately. It requires several hours of feeding before the host gets infected. Interestingly, tick bites are painless, thanks to their saliva, making nerves numb and prevent skin from turning red. This particular behavior makes them extremely difficult to identify in the early stage.
