Maps to show the genospecies distribution of B. burgdorferi (s.l.) infected ticks from a previous study when ticks were sampled in 2007/2008 (a) [8, 9] and sites sampled in this study in 2012 (b). The area of the pie chart is proportional to the prevalence of B. burgdorferi (s.l.) The colour of pie chart sections corresponds to B. burgdorferi (s.l.) genospecies as follows: red is B. afzelii, blue is B. garinii, yellow is B. burgdorferi (s.s.), purple is B. valaisiana, green are mixed genospecies infections. White circles outlined in black show locations of sites where no B. burgdorferi (s.l.) infected ticks were detected
