Ixodes dammini

A species that is a vector of Lyme disease (Borrelia burgdorferi) and human babesiosis (Babesia microti) in the United States. Bites causing Lyme disease in humans are from nymphal ticks about the size of a pencil point, infected with B. burgdorferi from white-footed field mice. Adult ticks complete their two-year life cycle feeding on deer. Also termed I. scapularis.
