Borrelia burgdorferi was found widespread in ixodid ticks from the Basque Country (Spain) during a two-step study. In the first part, a total of 7,835 ixodids of eight different species was collected from vegetation, classified, and processed using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for detection of B. burgdorferi ospA DNA. B. burgdorferi DNA wasdetectedin < or = 12.5% of adults and > or = 0.6% of Ixodes ricinus (L., 1758) nymphs (mean 1.5 and 0.05%, respectively), and in < or = 14.3% of adult… CONTINUE READING
