Fig. 4

B. burgdorferi (s.l.) prevalence and genospecies composition in questing Ixodes ricinus nymphs at six sites in Scotland sampled in multiple years. Site locations are shown in Fig. 1. Each site has three bars which illustrate the results of sampling conducted in (from left to right for each site) 2007/2008, 2012 and 2013. Sites are categorised as ‘high’ and ‘low’ prevalence based on the initial prevalence estimate in 2007/2008
