Ticks are first on this list because they’re very common in North America. It used to be that you had to be stomping around in tall grass or trekking in heavily forested areas to encounter a tick. But now, they’re more prevalent than ever. The danger with ticks is two-fold. First, they are often carriers of diseases. Some tick-borne diseases can cause serious symptoms and in rare cases can cause death. Second, ticks are sometimes tough to spot. You might not know you’ve even been bitten until a while after the initial encounter. It makes tick-borne diseases tough to diagnose since sometimes people don’t even know they’ve been in close proximity with these little critters.
