Ixodes tick

Nymph Ixodes ticks are small and round.  They are similar in size to a poppy seed.  Adults are much larger than immature ticks, averaging about 3 mm in length in the non-fed state. Females are orange-red with a dark brown oval structure on the dorsal side.  Males are universally brown on the dorsal surface. During feeding, ticks firmly attach to the skin.  Ticks that are easily removed have not yet started the feeding process and cannot transmit Lyme disease.  Spirochetes begin to appear in tick saliva after 48 hours.  They typically reside in the midgut and migrate to the salivary glands during feeding. Ticks engorge with host blood during feeding.  After feeding, they detach from the host and fall off.
