Best known are the tiny deer tick, which spreads Lyme disease and the newly-diagnosed human granulocytic ehrlichia infection; the Lone Star Tick, which transmits Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever; and the dog tick. All ticks are capable of spreading disease to humans and animals. As a precaution, all ticks should be treated as if they carry disease.
Because ticks are so small, blood has for them the consistency of jello. In order to thin the blood meal so it's easier to suck in, the tick secretes saliva and in so doing may also secrete any disease-carrying bacteria harboring in its gut. This is how Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever and other tick-borne illnesses are transmitted.
