In brief: Som?? sometimes
Usually there are multiple bites with mosquitos.

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.
