Ticks and Lyme Disease - What you need to know

A tick is very small and can range in size from a poppy seed to a small grape (when engorged). They do not jump or fly.

Ticks are normally found in forested areas or areas with long grass, where they attach themselves to humans and animals passing by.

On humans, ticks normally attach to areas such as the groin, armpits, hairline or behind the ears.
