Spatially Scalable Integrated Tick Vector/Rodent Reservoir Management to Reduce Human Risk of Exposure to Ixodes scapularis Ticks Infected with Lyme Disease Spirochetes

Lyme disease, caused primarily by the spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto in the United States, is the most commonly reported vector-borne disease with >30,000 confirmed or probable cases reported annually and a recent estimate suggesting that ten-fold more cases may occur.



is currently no human vaccine against B.


However, tick/pathogen control efforts that combine killing of host-seeking ticks with targeting of natural rodent reservoirs for B.

burgdorferi can reduce the abundance of host-seeking infected ticks on residential properties.

The purpose of the project is to advance knowledge of the impact of protection of single versus multiple adjacent properties - in relation to human landscape use patterns and tick exposure locations – to reduce human exposure to ticks infected with Lyme disease spirochetes.
