The Fauquier Chapter of NatCapLyme conducted a tick surveillance, and an analysis of ticks throughout their county, to learn what tick types were present and what infections they carried. Funded by a $25,000 private grant, ticks were collected and studied by graduate students and research professors at Old Dominion University (ODU). Professors at ODU are known for their extensive experience in tick research. Analysis of the Deer ticks revealed that 52% contained Borrelia burgdorferi, while Ehrlichiosis and Rickettsias were found in Lone Star and American Dog ticks.
