Q: Qual é a diferença entre tick e mite ?
A: A tick is a small bug that sucks your blood. You usually get them when you are walking through tall brush (grass and stuff). Ticks dig into the skin and are hard to get out. They can also spread disease (like Lyme disease)

A mite is a smaller bug that usually lives off of little bits of humans - like dead skin. They are too small to be seen without a microscope (another common way to say that is "too small to be seen with the naked eye"). Dust mites are commonly a cause of allergies inside the house. I am not sure if "bed bugs" are some kind of mite, but maybe.

A flea is something that also sucks blood -- you did not ask about it, but sometimes people get fleas and ticks mixed up. A flea usually lives on cats, dogs, or other hairy animals. They have very itchy bites.

Another similar animal is a louse(lice), which live on the hair. They are small than fleas and do not jump around, though.
