host associations and genomic diversity of borrelia hermsii in an endemic focus of tick-borne relapsing fever in western north unrecognized focus of tick-borne relapsing fever caused by borrelia hermsii was identified in 2002 when five people became infected on wild horse island in flathead lake, montana. the terrestrial small mammal community on the island is composed primarily of pine squirrels (tamiasciurus hudsonicus) and deer mice (peromyscus maniculatus), neither of which was known as a natural host for the spirochete. thus a 3-year study was performed to identify small mammals as hosts for b. hermsii.201627832805
susceptibility of various species of rodents to the relapsing fever spirochete, borrelia a study to determine susceptibility to borrelia hermsii of various rodents commonly found in or near places where human cases of relapsing fever occurred, chipmunks (eutamias amoenus), pine squirrels (tamiasciurus hudsonicus richardsoni), flying squirrels (glaucomys sabrinus), columbian ground squirrels (spermophilus columbianus columbianus), golden-mantled ground squirrels (s. lateralis tescorum), wood rats (neotoma cinerea cinerea), white-footed deer mice (peromyscus maniculatus), and meado ...197016557828
