Abstract

Hemaphysalis leporispalustris (Packard), Ixodes brunneus Koch, Ixodes cookei Packard, Ixodes dentatus Marx, and Ixodes texanus Banks were collected during a 3-yr study of pathogen–tick–host interactions in southeastern Missouri. H. leporispalustris was collected from the eastern cottontail rabbit, Northern bobwhite, and Carolina wren, and it was active all year. I. brunneus was collected by drag and from passerine birds during December, March, and April. I. cookei was collected from raccoons and mink during April, June, September, October, and November. I. dentatus was collected from the cottontail rabbit and Carolina wren throughout the year. I. texanus was collected from the eastern gray squirrel, Virginia opossum, and raccoon throughout the year.
