Abstract :

Ticks, small external parasites belonging to the order Parasitiformes, pose a significant threat to human and animal health by transmitting various diseases. This article highlights the life cycle of ticks and the factors contributing to their population growth. Ticks undergo a four-stage life cycle, requiring a blood meal at each stage for development. Their population growth can be influenced by habitat change, climate change, host availability, wildlife conservation, and human activities. Climate change, in particular, plays a vital role in extending the active season, enhancing reproduction and survival rates, expanding geographic ranges, and affecting host behavior and distribution. As ticks become more prevalent in diverse environments, understanding the drivers of tick population growth becomes crucial to implementing effective control strategies and mitigating the risks of tick-borne diseases. By exploring habitat conservation, tick control measures, raising awareness, and promoting protective measures, we can address the challenges posed by ticks and their impact on public health. Continued research and public health efforts are essential to combat the increasing threat of tick-borne illnesses.
