Experimental transmissions of the spotted fevers of the United States, Colombia, and Brazil by the argasid tick
tested Carios kelleyi ticks, argasid tick
species found on bats, from residential and community buildings in Iowa, for Anaplasma, Bartonella, Borrelia, Coxiella, and Rickettsia spp.
Tickborne relapsing fever in humans in North America is most often caused by the spirochete Borrelia hermsii, which is transmitted by its argasid tick
vector, Ornithodoros hermsi (1).
Ixodid and argasid tick
species and West Nile virus.
heilongjiangensis infections, and as a reaction to argasid tick
Therefore, tick-borne transmission studies were performed with an ixodid (Ixodes ricinus) and an argasid tick
species (Ornithodoros moubata).
hermsii, is transmitted by Ornithodoros hermsi, a fast-feeding argasid tick
can also release pathogens through excess liquid excreted from the coxal glands located adjacent to the first segment (coxa) of the front legs.
Characteristics of the transphase and transovarial transmission of Rickettsia sibirica by ixodid and argasid ticks
A total of 8,537 argasid ticks
belonging to 2 genera were collected from Bijar County (Table 3).
Antibody responses of laboratory mice to sequential feeding by two species of argasid ticks
During the 2007 and 2009 study periods, we collected 369 rodents and insectivores and 222 ixodid and 128 argasid ticks
from 6 localities in Kyrgyzstan (Figure 1; Table 1) in accordance with animal subject review boards of Texas Tech University and the State University of New York at Buffalo.
