  • Within 2001-2003, a total of 4743 ticks of Ixodes ricinus were trapped from the forest area in Masyw Sliy (Lower Silesia, Poland) near Wrocław. Common distribution of ixodid ticks in all examined habitats, located near touristic routes, are potential loci of Lyme borreliosis in these recreational areas. Out of 1108 tick samples examined by the observation in DFM for the presence of spirochetes, 6.7% were positive. The highest percent of infected ticks (13.1%) was found in 2003.
