Description

Ten years ago in Central Wisconsin, less than 20% of black-legged ticks, Ixodes scapularis, harbored Borrelia burgdorferi, the Lyme disease pathogen, while none were detected with Anaplasma phagocytophilum, the agent of Anaplasmosis. At that time, B. burgdorferi and I. scapularis populations were both found distinct among Northwest WI, Central WI, and Northeast WI, with very little gene flow between them (Borrelia p
