Abstract

Laboratory reared Ixodes scapularis proved to be an efficient vector of Babesia odocoilei Emerson and Wright between white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus). Transta-dial survival of the babesia occurred between nymph and adult stages of the tick, and the adult stage transmitted the babesia.
