dc.description.abstractAfter observing Asian long-horned tick's (Haemaphysalis longicornis) peculiar behavior of avoiding contacts with humans, I was curious to see if the ticks would latch on (to feed) if I forcefully placed them on my hand. As you see in the video, the moment I open my palm (where I held the ticks captive), H. longicornis frantically run around and jump off the closest edge they can find. Such display of extreme dislike for human hosts is very unique and an interesting behavior.en_US
