In brief: See below:

Risk of lyme disease: northeast, from maine to northern virginia; upper midwest, including most of wisconsin, northern minnesota and a sliver of northern illinois.
"emerging risk" regions: illinois-indiana border, the new york-vermont border, southwestern michigan & eastern n. Dakota. Ehrlichosis: southeastern & south-central United States, from the eastern seaboard to texas.

In brief: All of US but esp...

Lyme has been reported in every state, though the highest reported incidence is in new england, ny, nj, pa, de, md, va, wi, mn&ca.
The cdc estimates the true number of cases is at least 10 times those reported.See http://module.Lymediseaseassociation.Net/maps/ it may be that lyme is reported more in some states because drs. There are more aware of it. Hit the tap button to see my answer re: ehrlichiosis:.

Re: Ehrlichiosis, quoting Medscape: Most cases of ehrlichiosis in the United States occur in California and Texas and in the southeast and northeast regions of the country, with some cases occurring in the north-central states west of the Great Lakes.
