Winter survival and spring breeding by the fall tick, Ixodes dammini, in Massachusetts (Acarina: Ixodidae)
1984 - Volume: 25 Issue: 3 pages: 223-229
In Massachusetts, the Ixodes dammini fall breeding period is ineffective because of the limited survival of engorged females. Adult overwinter survival allows a spring breeding period to maintain the population.
