Ticks are known to cause a very serious disease that is known as Lyme disease. Lyme disease can effect a human for the rest of their life. They will often have arthritis symptoms for several years all due to a bite from an insect that is less than 3mm big.
These ticks are often found in wooded areas and can attach to your skin as you walk through tall grass or bushes.
