Thanks for sharing the article, Mpos!!!
In trying to find somewhere that the article can be read in full without a subscript
ion, I came across this 2004 article: goo.gl/NZfHk2
"The Prevalence of spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato in ticks Ixodes ricinus and mosquitoes Aedes spp. within a selected recreational area of the city of Szczecin"
which states in the introduction: "Because the spirochetes have also been detected in Hematophagous insects such as horse flies, deer flies, fleas and mosquitoes, the role of those arthropods cannot be ruled out in the epidemiology of Lyme disease."
"In the areas of particularly high incidence of human Borreliosis (e.g. Connecticut), Borrelia burgdorferi was found with the aid of IFA in 36.2% of ticks Ixodes scapularis and in 9.5 - 11.1% of mosquitoes of the genus Aedes."
"The low percentage of infected mosquitoes compared to infected ticks may be related to the 2 week survival period of the spirochete in the organism of those insects."
Also, in a paper that PubMed doesn't want us seeing, titled "Erythema chronicum migrans (Afzelii) associated with mosquito bite.", there was a documented case back in 1966
- "In Sweden there was a case of erythema migrans observed after a mosquito bite" www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/4163724
Still, the CDC only says that ticks pass these infections??? Even though there are documented
cases showing otherwise.
