Hi <<<<< Lyme Family >>>>>,

Got some Lyme info' from a Counselor friend, who is trying to help us here. Part was accurate, but not all.

Besides Black legged deer ticks which other types spread LD and Co's [most can right?] ?

And I know Horse flies and some other biting flies can spread it,as well as some Mosquitoes.

I know rabbits, rodents, mice and birds can be carriers of the ticks, as well as family pets.

Wish I could remember particulars, but right now, the creeping brain fog is over active.

Thanks for any info' y'all may reply with!

Hey Silver! Good to see you!

I consider any tick able to transmit Lyme and coinfections until it is proven it can't be.

The reason is because the "officials" say only THIS specific tick can transmit it, then a few years later it is proven different and they have to eat their words, while they've caused problems for many people in the meantime.

This may help?

4. How many species of ticks carry the Lyme disease spirochetes?

At least nine species of ticks, six species of mosquitoes, 13 species of mites, 15 species
 of flies, two species of fleas, and numerous wild and domestic animals (including 
rabbits, rodents, and birds) have been found to carry the spirochete that causes Lyme 
disease.

This is the CDC list- and you can see it hasn't been updated since July 2017.

https://www.cdc.gov/ticks/diseases/index.html

Plus, when have they ever been right about anything Lyme related?

Hey back at ya SW!

Lyme has been found in every state.

Coinfections have been found in many, but I don't believe all. Most coinfections are not "reportable" so there is no way to determine exactly what is where and where they are popping up.

The link below will have a section that says the following, and those links will take you to the official reportable case numbers for Lyme.

National- All States
2006 to 2016 Cases

National- ALL States
1990 - 2014

National- All States Listed By County
2000 thru 2016

No known chart for reported cases of coinfections in every state that I know about.

Only bits and pieces here and there.

Hi <<<<< Tinny >>>>>,

Thanks for the link on reported Lyme cases, it is a shame that CDC,AMA etc. haven't figured out that the co-infections need to be reported too.

I appreciate the help in finding the info',very much!!!

"No known chart for reported cases of coinfections in every state that I know about." (end quote)

Most doctors know nothing about lyme much less the coinfections. Most don't consider testing. Most testing is not totally accurate.

Therefore, I would never assume that lyme or any of the coinfections are "not in your state" no matter what your local doctors might think, say or insist.

Keep in mind that ANY kind of tick that bites can pass along any infection that it harbors. Within the span of time the skin breaks and the bite hit host blood.

And any critter can carry ticks all over the place. Birds, especially are a major carrier. Even penguins at the South Pole have been found to have ticks with a certain strain of borrelia.

Mice that scamper onto ships can carry ticks, disease, too and then depart the vessel by hopping onto cargo when it's unloaded at ports.

Christmas Trees - Holiday Greenery

is also something to consider. I know two people who contracted lyme from ticks that were brought in on trees. These trees often travel thousands of miles, through many different states with critters able to hop on or off go at various points along the route.
