Because they are blood eating organisms, they pose the risk of passing blood borne diseases to their hosts, namely Lyme disease. Having a tick infect you with Lyme disease will result in flu like symptoms and cause more serious issues down the road. Frequently, Lyme disease goes untreated due to its close resemblance to the flu.
If you have been bitten by a tick, you will know it. These blood suckers bury their heads deep within their hosts and then begin feeding.
