Seroprevalence of anti-Borrelia hermsii antibodies in serum samples collected from small mammals at Flathead Lake, Montana. Each dot represents the percentage of individuals seropositive out of the total number sampled at one site for each of the 2 or 3 years sampled. The seroprevalence for Tamiasciurus hudsonicus, Glaucomys sabrinus, and the Tamias species combined was significantly higher than for the other species (ANOVA, F (5,35) = 29.080, P < 0.0001; horizontal bars represent the mean values). Species with less than ten individuals captured per location and season were omitted. Seroprevalence of 1.0 = 100 %
