They transmit Borrelia, a bacteria which causes Borreliosis (Lyme disease, Lyme like diseases), Ehrlichia, Babesia, Rickettsia, Bartonella and other infections of unknown cause or origin.
The Paralysis Tick is commonly found on the east coast of Australia, alongside the Brown dog tick and the Bush Tick.
Ticks lay thousands of eggs and then die, male ticks feed on female ticks while they copulate, the male tick is less dangerous than females as they are more likely to feed on females than hosts (e.g humans, dogs, birds, and reptiles).
