Editor’s note: The study here represents findings by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), which denies the existence of chronic Lyme disease and generally underrepresents the prevalence and seriousness of tick-borne disease in the US.

Frequency and Distribution of Rickettsiae, Borreliae, and Ehrlichiae Detected in Human-Parasitizing Ticks, Texas, USA
 
Abstract
 
To describe the presence and distribution of tickborne bacteria and their vectors in Texas, USA, we screened ticks collected from humans during 2008-2014 for Rickettsia, Borrelia, and Ehrlichia spp. Thirteen tick species were identified, and 23% of ticks carried bacterial DNA from at least 1 of the 3 genera tested.
