Borrelia miyamotoi in Human-Biting Ticks, United States, 2013–2019
During 2013–2019, Borrelia miyamotoi infection was detected in 19 US states. Infection rate was 0.5%–3.2%; of B. miyamotoi–positive ticks, 59.09% had concurrent infections. B. miyamotoi is homogeneous with 1 genotype from Ixodes scapularis ticks in northeastern and midwestern states and 1 from I. pacificus in western states.
And yes, Wisconsin is one of them.

Since Borrelia miyamotoi is NOT a reportable illness to the CDC, no one has any clue about prevalence, but reports are coming in continually that it’s highly likely to be a much bigger problem than ‘authorities’ believe.It was recently discovered that:
- Among positive ticks, 60% were for B. miyamotoi.
- Testing on over 2,000 humans (mainly late stage/chronic patients) showed 30% negative results and 70% positive, among which over 60% indicated the presence of specific Borrelia miyamotoi phages. https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2020/11/30/neglected-infections-gastrointestinal-issues-in-patients-with-late-vector-borne-infections/
