Know your ticks!  Some ticks are more likely to transmit Lyme Disease than others.  Do you know the difference?

Deer/Black Legged Ticks:  Very small orange/brown in color with a black spot near the head.  These CAN be a carrier of Lyme Disease.

Wood Ticks:  Approximately 2 times larger than deer/black legged ticks with a white spot near the head.  NOT likely a carrier of Lyme DIsease.
