The landscape ecology of Lyme disease was studied in 1989 on 67 residences in an endemic area of Armonk, Westchester County, a northern suburb of New York City.
Four main habitat types were defined, and each property was surveyed for immature and adult/xodes dammini ticks; 98.6% of 1,790 ticks collected were I. dammini.
Overall 67,3% were collected from woods, 21.6% from ecotone (unmaintained edge), 91% from ornamental vegetation, and 2% from lawns.
Larval ticks were concentrated in woods, but nymphs and adults were widely dispersed in all habitats.
Tick abundance was positively correlated with property size.
