Some of you reading this right now might be in for a bit of shock treatment. Even so, this is probably one of the joys of being an online copywriter. You could also call it a bit of an occupational hazard but what a pleasure. Never mind those fabulous encyclopedias, online or in print.

How about hearing it from the local barman. He always seems to know a lot more than others. And you wonder where he heard that story before? Anyhow, this much is true. Like many insect species, ticks have their own sub-species. There are those that have six legs. By now, most readers would have gathered that these are insects. So true. But how about this. There are those ticks that have eight legs! And you wonder how that happened?

Yes, that’s quite correct, ticks are also arachnids. But they are not spiders. Spiders are still good because they of course feed off the insects often regarded as pests to this writer and   his readers. Ticks on residential properties need to be cleared out. Ticks on factory floors, in warehouses and open yard lots also need to be cleared out. But ticks in natural enclaves or nature reserves need to be left alone.

Because out in nature, ticks form an important part of the wildlife’s ecosystem.

But in the domestic environment, ticks will be feeding off small, vulnerable pets. And on the factory floor and in the warehouses, they’ll be ruining stock.
