Ticks used to be just another mildly annoying insect, but ticks are known to cause some of the worst illnesses that people and animals can contract. There's Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and more, making ticks are a real danger to anyone who plays, works, or simply goes outside. In this authoritative guide, readers learn important information on how ticks can infect people, what to do if they bite, and how to avoid them in the first place. As ticks broaden their ranges, this information is more important than ever for protecting ourselves.
