Duration of tick attachment and Borrelia burgdorferi transmission.

Abstract

Nymphal Ixodes dammini transmitted Borrelia burgdorferi to 1 of 14 rodents exposed for 24 h, 5 of 14 rodents exposed for 48 h, and 13 of 14 rodents exposed for greater than or equal to 72 h. Prompt removal of attached ticks is a prudent public health measure, especially in regions where Lyme disease is endemic.
