Other Tick-Borne Diseases
A study in Journal of Medical Entomology by Christopher D. Paddock, et al., took a deeper look into Rickettsia (Rickettsiales: Rickettsiaceae), a unique Rickettsia species that may possibly be pathogenic and occurs in I. pacificus (Acari: Ixodidae), the Western blacklegged tick. The R. tillamookensis agent was first mentioned in 1978 and has been recently recognized as a novel transitional group agent. Historically, incidence rates and distribution levels of R. tillamookensis have been widely unknown.

The report of a human death in Georgia from Heartland virus (HRTV) as well as confirmed white-tailed deer exposure to the tick-borne pathogen prompted researchers to collect samples of questing ticks in 2018–2019. The samples were taken from 26 sites near the areas where seropositive deer were captured, as well as the residence of the human patient.
