In brief: Som?? sometimes

Usually there are multiple bites with mosquitos.
A tick may still be attached at the bite site.

In brief: Usually

There are various types of ticks however most "tick bites" are smaller and less noticeable than the raised and erythematous bites of a mosquito.
In addition, mosquito bites are almost always itchy whereas that is not usually the case with a tick bite.
