Lizards can protect us from ticks.

Like a scene out of a horror film, adult western black-legged ticks (Ixodes pacificus) dangle on tips of grasses and other low-lying vegetation in their ghastly host-seeking posture called questing. In this stance, they spread their two front clawed limbs wide open and wait patiently for hours or even days for unexciting creatures to brash by so they can dig their metal-like mouthparts inside their host and gorge themselves on blood.
