Life Cycle of a Black-legged tick - Ticks often associated with transmission of lyme disease.

Did you know? 
Ticks are not born with the lyme disease agent, they must acquire it from a host while feeding.  
Ticks cannot fly or jump.  Ticks wait for their hosts on leaves and grass securing themselves with their back legs while their upper legs are stretched out.  As a host brushes past, the tick will affix itself and look for a spot to feed.
