Is this the world’s largest collection of Ticks?

Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, Georgia, USA is home to the US National Tick Collection. The collection consists of over 1,000,000 samples of ticks from all across the world, and although they have samples of over 860 different species of tick they estimate that this only accounts for just over a quarter of known tick types.

The collection is open for public visits on Wednesdays – if this really takes your fancy!
