Discussion

We examined the ratio of B. burgdorferi infection to B. microti infection in humans and ticks and found that in areas where the 2 infections have been endemic for at least 20 years, the human ratio was consistently 2 times higher than the tick ratio. We found a strong positive association between the human and tick ratios, using either state health department data from long-time B. microti–endemic states or data from private practices, indicating that the tick ratio can be used to estimate the relative risk for humans of acquiring B. burgdorferi and B. microti infection. In contrast, the human ratio in B. microti–emerging areas in northeastern Connecticut calculated from state-reported data was about 6 times higher than the tick ratio. These larger human ratios in emerging areas probably result from physician underreporting of babesiosis in comparison to Lyme disease cases. The nationally reported Lyme disease and babesiosis case ratio (25:1) is even greater and is probably caused by a combination of underreporting of babesiosis and the wider geographic distribution of B. burgdorferi. We conclude that the ratio of ticks infected with B. burgdorferi to those infected with B. microti may be used as a sensitive surveillance tool to identify new areas where human babesiosis is endemic but has not yet been reported or is underreported.
