The abilities of the most common European genospecies of Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato to survive blood meals taken by ticks feeding on birds were analyzed. A pattern of differential survival of the spirochetes in feeding ticks was observed. The result is consistent with the concept of selective transmission of Lyme borreliosis spirochetes.
