Lyme disease is caused by the bacteria Borelia and is transmitted to humans and animals through the bite of infected ticks. Lyme disease should be taken very seriously and should be treated as soon as possible. Signs and symptoms of Lyme disease vary and usually affect more than one system, so it is very hard for doctors to diagnose. The Beaphar Test the Tick is exclusively developed for the examination of ticks. A positive test result indicates the presence of Borelia in the tick.
