TICKS. CARRIERS OF LYME.
Similar to mosquitoes, ticks are vectors of disease. While still extremely serious, mosquito-borne disease only affects a few thousand people in the United States each year, while tick-borne disease afflicts tens of thousands. Dissimilar to mosquitoes, ticks don't bite and then carry on their way. With beak-like projections that plunge into the skin of their host, ticks will stay attached to a single host for as long as weeks at a time.
