A Boy Heard a Buzzing Sound in His Ear. It Was a Tick on His Eardrum. A 9-year-old boy from New England who heard a buzzing in his ear discovered it was an insect that had attached itself to his eardrum. In a case study published in theNew England Journal of Medicine, doctors have detailed how the child visited a pediatric ear, nose and throat specialist after complaining that he could feel something inside his right ear.

A Kentucky man had a tick in his eye after untangling a tree from a power line.

The teeny parasite fought its way into Prater's eye some time during a July tree-cutting job in Johnson County, he explained.

Prater didn't originally think anything of the irritation before the diagnosis. It must've been the sawdust that got caught in his eyeball, he thought, and he could easily flush it out later.

Flush he did, but the discomfort persisted. Prater begrudgingly saw an optometrist who broke the news — a deer tick had taken up residence in his cornea.

Before Prater could wrap his head around it, the doctor numbed his eye and plucked the pest out with tweezers.

The tick made a "little popping sound" as it was pulled out, he said.

The doctor sent him off with antibiotics and a prescription for steroid eye drops. And Prater left with one less living thing sharing his body.

Prater's tick-in-the-eye isn't even the first reported: an eye doctor recounted yanking a live tick out of a man's eye in a 2011 report from the American Academy of Ophthalmology.

And they're not partial to eyeballs, either. A 9-year-old boy in Connecticut returned from a romp at the playground to find a tick embedded in his ear, feeding on the blood from his eardrum tissue. If it hadn't been removed, doctors said the tick's tissue-munching might've impaired his hearing.

Oh, and researchers recently discovered that a species that has learned to clone itself and is predicted to "soon occupy a large swath of eastern North America."
