And not just any tick, but a “Deer Tick.” So far as I know, they’re the only ticks to carry Lyme Disease. When I got bit by a tick, I took the dead tick to my doctor and he sent it to a lab to see what kind it was. It wasn’t a Deer Tick so I was OK.
One of my brothers and his son did get Lyme Disease from Deer Ticks. Wasn’t any fun.

One minor quibble: I've never heard of a case of Lyme disease from a mosquito bite. The usual mode of transmission is from the bite of a tick infected with the Borrelia bacterium.
