Abstract

Twenty-five white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus yucatanensis) (WTD), 4 mazama deer (Mazama temama) (MD), and the ticks they host in Yucatan, Mexico were sampled to run a molecular survey for tick-borne rickettsial agents. The prevalence of rickettsial agents was 20% in WTD (5/25) and 50% in...
