Terrible Ticks


Unfortunately, it is more than likely that most of us have run into a tick or two once before in our life time. These blood- sucking critters have been around for the better part of 90 million years and aren't predicted to be going away any time soon. Seeing as how these minuscule "bugs" have the capability of carrying life-threatening diseases, we as humans need to be vigilant in preparation and treatment of the influx of these inhabitants.

Even though the above statements are quite true, most ticks you will encounter do not actually carry any harmful diseases and are simply just there to suck your blood not destroy it. However, according to Medicine Net, there are plenty of viruses and bacteria ticks can carry that we should be aware of.

Colorado Tick Fever
Lyme Disease
Q Fever
Bourbon Virus Disease
Tick-borne Relapsing Fever
