Abstract

Environmental stressors can have unintended negative effects on beneficial organisms. Testing environmental effects of pharmaceutical residues is therefore often mandated in form of single-species ecotoxicological laboratory tests, yet differential sensitivity of species can ultimately disturb the...

Abstract

The effect of ivermectin on soil organisms was assessed in Terrestrial Model Ecosystems (TMEs). Intact soil cores were extracted from a pasture in England and kept for up to 14 weeks in the laboratory. Ivermectin was applied to the soil surface via spiked cow dung slurry at seven concentration...

Abstract

The present work aimed to evaluate the endectocide activity of a new injectable long-action formulation, containing ivermectin (IVM) and abamectin (ABA). In each one of the four experiments performed, the following groups were formed: group I: 2.25% IVM (450 µg/kg)+1.25% ABA (250 µg/kg), group II:...

Abstract

Endectocides, or macrocyclic lactones, are veterinary parasiticides used globally to control nematodes and arthropods affecting livestock. Cattle treated with these products fecally excrete residues that are toxic to dung-inhabiting insects, including species that accelerate dung degradation....

Abstract

On each of 4 dates between May and September 1988, ivermectin was mixed into 60 × 1 kg pats of cattle dung, such that each contained 2, 1, 0.5, or 0 mg ivermectin per kilogram. The pats were then placed on pasture in a stratified, random, block plot and exposed for 15, 30, 45, 60, or 90 d. 12 pats...

Abstract

The effect of ivermectin treatment of cattle on the rate of dung beetle colonization of cow pats was assessed by pitfall trapping in Denmark, Tanzania and Zimbabwe in 1990-91. Ivermectin was injected subcutaneously into heifers at the recommended dose of 0.2 mg/kg body weight, and dung to be used...

Abstract

A reply is given to a news item in this same journal which commented on the potential of ivermectin, as a systemic controlled-release formulation (boluses) in cattle, to eliminate dung beetles and other invertebrates, and thus increase the amount of pasture in Australia fouled by dried dung. The...
