Ticks are a parasite which means they feed off of the buffalo, but the oxpicker has a symbolic relationship with the buffalo. It eats the ticks on the buffalo helping it and doesn't feed off the animal.
The tick bird eats ticks off the rhino. They can cause several diseases. The bird get a meal, the rhino gets rid of the ticks. The relationship is one where both benefit and it is called commensal relationship.
it depends upon what parasite and what host. examples: 1. the phorid fly and leaf cutter ant; the larvae of fly eats the ant from the inside 2. misquito and homans; female misquito injest blood for protein 3. ticks and humans; ticks can give us lyme disease
Yes, I think it is possible to have ticks inside of your house because of the reason that ticks will get on your pets, and they can even get on you, and when you go inside, you and you pet will have tracked ticks into your home. I hope this paragraph helped=)
