Abstract

The distribution of Ixodes dammini in Minnesota was studied by collecting adult ticks from hunting dogs during the grouse seasons in September and October of 1985 and 1986. The tick was most frequently found in the east-central part of the state. Borrelia spp. were observed by immunofluorescence in 10% of the ticks. The locations where ticks were found coincide with the primary endemic areas for Lyme disease in the state.
