Description:Caption:
This image depicts the typical backyard of a family residential home, surrounded by lush tree growth and shrubbery, which would act as a perfect habitat for the type of ticks responsible for the transmission of arboviral diseases, including Lyme disease. The Lyme disease bacterium, Borrelia burgdorferi, is spread through the bite of infected ticks. The blacklegged, or deer tick, Ixodes scapularis, spreads the disease in the northeastern, mid-Atlantic, and north-central United States, while the western blacklegged tick, Ixodes pacificus, spreads the disease on the Pacific Coast.
