If you find a tick on yourself, don't panic, but get it off quickly, with clean tweezers, by pulling the head and body from your skin. Doctors say it takes quite a few hours after it latches on, before it starts transmitting any nasty diseases it hasto you.
Depending on the type, they can carry Lyme Disease, an ailment called STARI and the potentially-deadly Rocky Mountain spotted fever.
