How Is Lyme Disease Caused?

An infected adult tick bores a tiny hole in the hosts' skin and attaches itself to the host. The Borrelia burgdorferi bacterium then moves from the tick's salivary glands into the hosts' bloodstream. The tick’s saliva contains a numbing, anesthetic-like substance that keeps you from feeling the bite. The tick needs to be attached for at least 24 hrs for transmitting the bacteria.
