Abstract: Ticks born disease are important problem in the European countries (Gray et al., 2009). Ticks now are second most important pathogens vector after mosquito, which cause people and animals illness (Beugnet and Marie, 2009). Small mammals are vectors in ticks born diseases life cycle. Rodents are recognized as main reservoir host for tick born disease (Meerburg, 2010). This study aim was to evaluate Babesia spp., Bartonella spp. pathogens prevalence in Lithuanian small mammals. Mammals were collected from three different biotopes: woodland, grassland, beaver lodge, and great cormorant colony. Small mammals were captured from 2013 to 2014. A total of 388 small rodents representing 8 species were trapped. Captured rodents were identified as Apodemus flavicollis, A. sylvaticus, Micromys minutus, Microtus glareolus, M. arvalis, M. oeconomus, M. agrestis, Arvicola terrestris, Muscardinus avellanarius, Sorex araneus, S. minutus. For analysis were used spleen samples. Identification of Bartonella spp. was done using gltA gene molecular markers and ITS regione, and for Babesia spp. - 18S RNA gene molecular markers. Bartonella spp. was detected in 26 % (102 of 388) of examined mammals, Babesia spp. was detected in 6% (25 of 388) of examined mammals
