How Tick Bites May Occur

Tick bites are primarily caused by the bite of an infected tick. Ticks can be found in grassy, wooded areas, and are often attracted to warm, moist environments. When a tick bites, it attaches itself to the skin and feeds on the host’s blood. If the tick is carrying a disease, it can transmit that disease to the host through its bite. Some of the most common diseases transmitted by ticks include Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and ehrlichiosis.
