A Tick Gives You Lyme Disease

Before you kick back after a long, hard day of yard work, be sure to check yourself for ticks. Lyme disease is transmitted through infected blacklegged tick bites, and can lead to fever, headache and rash. Things can get worse if it's left untreated, since the infection can spread to your nervous system, joints—even your heart.
