Host detection rates at 2 months and 8 months post-moult for both qPCR and RLBH methods for (a) nymphal ticks (48 ticks were tested in each group) and (b) adult ticks which fed on the same host type at larval and nymphal stages (30 ticks were tested in each group except for sheep ticks 8 months post-moult for which only 24 ticks were analysed). For ease of interpretation, we have linked treatment groups at the two time intervals
