There are many species of ticks. They are blood-sucking insects that thrive in the Australian bush.
The paralysis tick is distributed mainly along the eastern coast of Australia, from Queensland to Victoria. Human encounters with ticks are not uncommon, but most are uneventful. Undiagnosed, however, a tick that gets under the skin can cause on-going problems, including paralysis, tick typhus and Lyme disease. Ticks usually transfer from foliage to a host. Paralysis ticks are responsible for poisoning that kills many domestic animals, particularly cats and dogs, as well as causing discomfort and illness.
The brown dog tick is an introduced species that has become established in northern New South Wales and Queensland. In these areas, it is the usual ticks on dogs, but it can also be found on cats, sheep, cattle, horses and humans.
