the woodmouse (apodemus sylvaticus) as a reservoir of tick-transmitted spirochetes (borrelia burgdorferi) in the netherlands.in three widely separated locations in the netherlands, woodmice (apodemus sylvaticus) were trapped, examined for ticks and subjected to xenodiagnosis for the detection of tick-transmitted spirochetes (borrelia burgdorferi). during the spring and summer, an average of 2.4 ixodes larvae/mouse (n = 170) was observed, but the true numbers were probably greater. the numbers of nymphs could be determined more accurately and amounted to 0.46 nymphs/mouse. the percentage of mice that were infected with ...19938219511
diversity of ixodes ricinus tick-associated bacterial communities from different forests.nymphal ixodes ricinus ticks (n=180) were collected from three different areas in the netherlands to investigate the effect of forest composition on tick-associated microbial communities. sampled habitats differed in thickness of leaf litter and humus layers and vegetation associations and were located near amsterdam (beech-oak), ede (birch-oak) and veldhoven (birch-oak). analysis of nine 16s rrna gene clone libraries made from individual ticks showed nearest matches with presumed pathogens cand ...200818355299
