Causes Of Lyme Disease

Deer ticks cause lyme disease. There are many other ticks that can transmit the disease, but deer ticks are the most common carriers. These are pin sized ticks that thrive on blood of deer, mice and birds. These brown colored ticks stay in woody and grassy areas. They catch their prey when somebody is passing through the area. Once the tick attaches itself on the skin, it transmits the infection in two days. After visiting any such area, if you can locate all the ticks on your body and take them out, you can save yourself from lyme disease to a great extent. Lets talk more about this in prevention and treatment.
