What is Lyme Disease?
Lyme disease is a bacterial infection primarily transmitted by ticks. These little devils hide very well in wooded or grassy areas. The most popular name for the bacteria carrying tick is the “deer tick”. A lot of people may think of Lyme as an East Coast disease, but the truth is that it is found throughout the United States, as well as in more than sixty other countries. It is one of the most commonly misdiagnosed diseases of the century.
- Ticks are part of the spider family

Fact: The Lyme spirochete bacteria is hard to detect and hard to kill. Lyme disease is growing at epidemic proportions in the United States.
