In rodents, which are generally regarded as the most important mammalian host for TBEV, detectable viraemia is rare and, when it does occur, is very short-lived. 3) to occur. This happens where summers are warm enough to allow rapid development of eggs, but also where autumns cool down quickly enough to force emerging larvae to overwinter without feeding. This results in both nymphs and larvae starting to quest at the same time the following spring. This phenomenon is susceptible to climatic changes, and it has been suggested that under the predicted warmer climatic conditions, the synchrony between larvae and nymphs may diminish or disappear in some regions, perhaps resulting in the loss of TBEV from areas where it is currently endemic, whilst facilitating its spread into other regions as the synchrony between larvae and nymphs would occur.

In a similar study, the intradermal skin test response to an R. sanguineus extract was compared in naïve and infested dogs, and naïve and infested guinea pigs. Infested dogs developed a strong immediate reaction, but infested guinea pigs had both immediate and delayed reactions. indd 34 response. This provides evidence that cell-mediated immunity is one factor important for tick elimination and that this may be lacking in R. sanguineus-infested dogs. Resistance to I. scapularis has also been studied in the dog using a repeat infestation model.

Immediately after introduction, highly virulent strains of virus were selectively advantaged. Increased virulence was associated with a greater area of infected skin on which fleas and mosquitoes could feed and higher densities of virus in that tissue (and therefore on the vectors’ mouthparts). Both factors combined to increase transmission. The virus strains with the highest R0 were those with the highest virulence and pathogenicity – and the result for rabbit populations was catastrophic. However, as the number of susceptible rabbits plunged, acquired immunity and the selection of innately more resistant lines of rabbits reduced the population susceptible to infection and, therefore, the frequency of contact between infectious and susceptible hosts.
