What are we looking for during a tick drag? Below are the five most common ticks found in Texas. The results of the A&M Lyme Lab study intend to confirm the CDC maps as well as the pathogens (diseases) carried by ticks found in Texas.
For examples of Lyme rashes, follow this link to the CDC.
The diseases shown as transmitted by ticks on the maps below are based on current information from the CDC. The CDC tends to lag current research by months or years. For example, it has been reported in various research studies that bartonellosis may be transmitted by ticks. As empirical research results are developed from studies such as the Texas A&M project, the CDC will eventually update its information.
