Differential detachment from resting hosts of replete larval and nymphal Ixodes ticks

Differential detachment from resting hosts of replete larval and nymphal Ixodes ticks

Journal of Parasitology 77(3): 341-345

To determine whether replete subadult Ixodes ticks detach more frequently from resting than from active hosts, diverse rodents and lizards were caged in an apparatus designed to record the ticks' sites of detachment relative to the resting site of the host. Replete larval I. ricinus and I. dammini accumulated mainly beneath the resting places of the mice (Apodemus agrarius and Peromyscus leucopus) most frequently parasitized in nature.
