The ticks hide in the flora/bushes in the desert and when a camel approaches the bush for eating, the ticks climb on its body, stick to the skin, and start suckling the camel’s blood. The ticks cause very serious diseases in camels and other livestock. Ticks and tick-borne pathogens (TBPs) affect the health and well-being of camels consequently diminishing their productivity and performance. The commonly found ticks in the camels are Hyalomma dromedarii. To watch the interesting video, click on the link.
