Tick-borne flaviviruses are common, widespread, and successfully adapted to their mode of transmission. Most tick vectors of flaviviruses are ixodid species. These ticks are characterized by a comparatively long life cycle, lasting several years, during which the infecting virus may be maintained from one developmental stage of the tick to the next.
