      Lyme disease is the most common vector-borne disease in the EU, with a reported incidence of approximately 65 cases per year. However, there is no standardised case definition or diagnosis for Lyme disease in Europe, so this number represents only a best estimate. The number of reported cases of TBE in the EU was 2 during The emergence and spread of vector-borne diseases (VBD) in Europe is a function of biotic (living organisms in an ecosystem), abiotic (nonliving elements in an ecosystem) and socioeconomic drivers of disease. Permissive circumstances that coincide in time and space can trigger an outbreak of VBD. Anticipating and elucidating such an outbreak requires a systems perspective.

      Malaria and Lyme disease were the largest vector-borne epidemics in recent US history. Malaria, a mosquito-borne disease with intense transmission, had higher morbidity and mortality, whereas Lyme and other tick-borne diseases are more persistent in the environment. The responses to these two epidemics were markedly different. The anti-malaria campaign involved large-scale public .

The author of this book, Norman Gratz, a medical entomologist, has written a very valuable resource on vectorborne and rodentborne diseases found in Europe and North America.

His book includes information on diseases transmitted by mosquitoes, ticks, rodents, mites, sandflies, fleas, lice, biting midges, diptera, triatomines, and cockroaches. A significant number of diseases are carried by insects, ticks, mites and rodents, and these diseases are far more common than is often realised.

New diseases are regularly discovered and are becoming increasingly widespread, in part due to increased global travel and possibly even climate change.

Furthermore, as will be seen, the incidence of many of the vector and rodent-borne diseases in both Europe and North America are actually increasing, some quite seriously, while new diseases are emerging and old ones resurging; to substantiate this, an effort has been made to provide references to as many relevant studies as possible as well as.
