Caption: Lyme disease tick (Ixodes ricinus) mouthparts. Animated scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the mouthparts of an adult male Lyme disease tick. Sensory pedipalps are on both sides of the mouth. Adult females infected with disease agents may transmit disease during feeding. Male ticks attach, but do not feed or become engorged and so do not transmit Lyme disease. Lyme disease causes fever, muscle pain, and inflamed joints.
