I know a few people with Lyme disease. In recent discussions they have been focused on Borrelia transmission from other blood sucking insects (besides ticks). I realize that this goes against current U.S. CDC guidelines. My friends realize this too. Does you know of any peer- reviewed studies indicating confirmed transmission of Lyme spirochetes from mosquitoes, bed bugs, lice, etc to humans? I am able to find research that identifies Borrelia in other blood sucking insects - but nothing about actual transmission from those insects to humans. Looking for peer reviewed, research on the topic.
