Abstract

Ticks and tickborne diseases are increasingly problematic. There have been positive developments that should result in improved strategies and better tools to suppress ticks, reduce human tick bites, and roll back tickborne diseases. However, we equally need to address the question of who is...

Abstract

Interactions between humans and ticks are often measured indirectly, using surveillance of tick population abundance and pathogen prevalence, or reported human disease data. We used data garnered as part of a free national citizen science research effort to describe actual human exposures to ticks...

Abstract

Lyme borreliosis (LB) is the most prevalent tick-borne disease in Europe and its incidence has steadily increased over the last two decades. In the Netherlands alone, more than 20,000 citizens are affected by LB each year. Because of this, two Dutch citizen science projects were started to monitor...

Abstract

As tick-borne diseases continue to emerge across the United States, there is need for a better understanding of the tick and pathogen communities in the southern states and of habitat features that influence transmission risk. We surveyed questing and on-host ticks in pine-dominated forests with...

Abstract

Ticks are important human and animal parasites and vectors of many infectious disease agents. Control of tick activity is an effective tool to reduce the risk of contracting tick-transmitted diseases. The castor bean tick (Ixodes ricinus) is the most common tick species in Europe. It is also a...

Abstract

Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto is the main etiological agent of Lyme disease (LD) in the USA. In Brazil, it is believed that a similar spirochete is the causal agent of the Baggio-Yoshinari syndrome (BYS), a zoonosis also transmitted by ticks, whose clinical manifestations are similar to those...

Abstract

Purpose of Review: Ticks are the second most important vectors of infectious diseases after mosquitoes worldwide. The growth of international tourism including in rural and remote places increasingly exposes travelers to tick bite. Our aim was to review the main tick-borne infectious diseases...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the current state of tickborne disease (TBD) knowledge and the TBD prevention methods used by orienteers in Poland, as well as to estimate the risk of TBD in the studied group. 159 members (aged 15 years and older; 51 females and 108 males) of the Polish...

Abstract

Ticks are arthropods with huge medical significance that can harbor a great variety of microorganism including pathogens as Borrelia burgdorferi, Babesia spp., CCHF-Virus, Rickettsia spp., Dirofilaria spp., which they can transmit to humans and animals. A better knowledge of ticks ecological...

Abstract

Tick-borne disease studies should include the vector community, reservoir hosts, pathogens prevalence, in both, vectors and reservoir hosts and the probability of a sensitive host encounter. Among those, knowledge of vector community is essential to assess the acarological risk of any tick-borne...
