Ticks
Ticks, which share the animal kingdom's Arthropoda phylum with crustaceans such as lobster and arachnids like spiders, pack a mighty punch for so small a creature. Ticks account for the majority of vector borne infections to people. Ticks transmit a greater variety of infectious illnesses to humans in the U.S. than any other arthropod. Ticks also transmit more diseases to domestic animals than any other arthropod. They can survive in nature for many years without food.
