Ixodes eldaricus hosts distribution


Ixodes eldaricus is reported from the western foothills of Judea. A total of 53 larvae, 26 nymphs and 5 adult ticks were collected in the field by dragging and flagging, mainly on the northern and western slopes. Thirty-two larvae were collected from two species of rodents - Acomys cahirinus and Mus musculus. A. cahirinus is a new host record for I. eldaricus. The ticks appeared in the field and on the mammals only during the winter-spring months (November-April). All three stages were found in the same season and no cases of tick paralysis were recorded in local livestock.
