Abstract

New host and distributional records, seasonal activities in Georgia, laboratory rearing data, and taxonomic description of nymphal and larval Ixodes affinis are presented. Our data expand the list of known natural hosts of this species, record for the first time several natural hosts of larvae and nymphs, provide information on feeding periods of all stages, preecdysial intervals, preovipositional, ovipositional, and incubational periods, as well as provide information on fecundity. The immatures are fully described and SEM micrographs of them are presented.
