A List of Names of Different Ticks That Can Transmit Lyme Disease

I'm sorry the links did not come over from the General Forum. If you want to view the hyper links click on "SEARCH" at the top of this page (right under the "Post New Topic" and "Reply to Topic".
In the search Boxes you should be able to acess the original hyperlinked post in the "General Forum " section, " Search {or search date} 03 Oct 2007, or by my "Member Number" which is '2120'. Sorry again & Thanks ~ Gus.

I'm not in the medical profession, and I'm not giving any medical advice. This list is not meant to be all inclusive, And there are probsbly more. The hyper links are provided for information and you are invited to check them. I hope this may be of help to someone.

1. Ixodes dammini ( deer tick)

2. Ixodes scapularis - (blacklegged tick)- (also in Florida) (may be the same species as I. dammini)

3. A. americanum -(Lone Stari) (also in Florida)

4. Ixodes affinis (also in Florida)

5. Molecular Identification and Analysis of Borrelia burgdorferi Sensu Lato and Ixodes scapularis in Lizards in the Southeastern United States. ( also in FL). (as you probably guessed, I live in Florida where my PCP told me there was only one tick with Lyme)

6.Detection of Borrelia burgdorferi DNA in Lizards from Southern Maryland

7. Ixodes auritulus Neumann

8. Ixodes spinipalpis

9. Ixodes muris (Bishopp & Smith)

10. Dermacentor variabilis

11. Ixodes texanus

12. Ixodes Cookei

13. Ixodes pacificus - (West Coast)
13. Ixodes pacificus - (West Coast)
Please note- there are no cross-infected ticks in this entry, although I think that there are. However, due to the large number of hosts in this species I. pacificus, I felt this information may be useful. I think there are more vectors, however I am only citing this. Google it . The western black-legged tick, Ixodes pacificus Cooley & Kohls, is an important parasite and vector of disease agents that affect human and animal health in the western United States. ..... mammals, birds, and reptiles.`` Nymphal I. pacificus were recorded from 30 species of mammals, 38 species of birds, and 8 reptile species''.

14. Ixodes ricinus (sheep tick)

15. Ixodes dentatus

Two more of interest


First Record of Lyme Disease Borrelia in the Arctic

Transhemispheric exchange of Lyme disease spirochetes by seabirds.

The following is only my opinion.
This illustrates that there are MANY DIFFERENT TICK SPECIES that are also infected with Lyme disease, far more than just the white tailed deer tick, or the Pacific lizard as I have been told by doctors. It continues to spread globally and will place increasing burdens on the world's health care systems. In doing this small amount of sorting through a few of many medical studies on ticks, I have found out that it is on every continent in the world, except Antarctica.
On the up side- as more and more people globally get infected with these diseases, the more heat (pronounced money) will be applied to prevent, fight and hopefully find a cure for everyone, including us who are currently infected by this debilitating disease.
The anti-Lyme folks can say all they want about how small the problem is, but the burden of proof is already there for those who want to look, and it's growing larger each year.

Thx -- I count 12 tick carriers of Lyme here. Ixodes dammini was the old name for the deer tick; now it's called Ixodes scapularis.

Are there any more Lyme tick carriers?

I'm convinced I got it from a soft tick, the kind that lives off ground squirrels, then goes semi-dormant in places like seasonal cabins and waits for a host emiting CO2 to spring into action. From what I remember they can feed very quickly then crawl off. I stayed at just such a cabin (at about 8000 feet in eastern Sierra)just prior to noticing a strange spider-like bite, then getting very very sick...4 years ago. Testing positive for lyme and babesia now.

They really do minimize the disease in an extraordinarily unscientific way!! Good post.
