  • Deer ticks, also called black-legged ticks, are small blood-sucking bugs about the size of a sesame seed, having eight black legs. While they typically target larger animals like deer, humans are also unsafe from their bites. These ticks are famous for passing the bacteria that causes Lyme disease, although they might also carry other harmful pathogens.

    Due to their small size, they can be hard to detect, often hiding in hidden body regions such as:

    • Armpits
    • Groin
    • Hair
    • Back of your knees
    • Inside your belly button
    • Around your waist
    • Inside and around your ears
