Reported county-level distribution of (A) Ehrlichia muris eauclairensis, (B) Babesia microti, and (C) Powassan virus in host-seeking Ixodes scapularis (eastern United States) or Ixodes pacificus (western United States), relative to the previously reported distribution of these vector species. Ticks were considered present in a county if at least one tick was recorded. Counties where ticks have been reported without records of infection may be reported as such either if ticks were not tested or if the pathogen was not detected in tested samples.

  1. I’m a land surveyor in Alabama and I can tell you without any doubt that ALL of NE Alabama is covered with ticks. I’ve seen the lone star , deer , and now these very small ones that you can bearly see, that leave painful quarter size sores.
