Birds Disperse Ixodid (Acari: Ixodidae) and Borrelia burgdorferi-Infected Ticks in Canada
It is concluded that passerine birds disperse several species of ixodid ticks in Canada, and during spring migration translocate ticks from the United States, and Central and South America, some of which are infected with B. burgdorferi.

Eastern cottontail rabbits, white-tailed deer, raccoons, and squirrels had the highest relative abundance of larval lone star ticks, but they were also found on opossums and wild turkey.
Ticks parasitizing humans in Georgia and South Carolina.
Lone star ticks, Amblyomma americanum, were a much more prevalent parasite of humans in the current survey and have epidemiological significance because these tick species are vectors of zoonotic pathogens or cause tick paralysis in humans.

Gulf Coast Ticks (Amblyomma maculatum) and Rickettsia parkeri, United States
Rickettsia parkeri was detected in ticks from Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and South Carolina, which suggests that A. maculatum may be responsible for additional cases of R. parkeri rickettsiosis throughout much of its US range.
