Vector competence of Ixodes angustus (Acari: Ixodidae) for Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto

Abstract

The vector competence of Ixodes angustus for Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto (s.s.) was investigated in the laboratory. The larval progeny of female ticks from Washington State were placed on Swiss-Webster mice that had been inoculated intravenously with 108 spirochetes each of a Californian isolate of B. burgdorferi. Spirochetes were detected in 6 (12… (More)
