Abstract

The aim of the study was to develop a simulation program in spreadsheets using Excel® to estimate the economic thresholds of acaricides used in the Rhipicephalus microplus tick control. The economic threshold is the population density of the parasite with which the decision is made to initiate a...

AbstractFull Text

Cryptosporidium parvum is coccidia, which is the cause agent of diarrheic diseases in several vertebrate species, from new born up to three months old calves. Samples were taken to a total of 381 calves from 54 double purpose production cattle farms from the Municipality of Cuajinicuilapa, in the...

Abstract

Of 20 blood samples from nilgais from México, five were polymerase chain reaction-positive for Babesia bigemina and one for Babesia bovis. Positive samples had the expected 170 (B. bigemina) and 291 (B. bovis) base pairs and were identical to Gen-Bank B. bigemina accession S45366 and B. bovis...

Abstract

Dialelic crosses and backcrosses of pyrethroid resistant (RR) and susceptible (SS) Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus tick strains were carried out and the substitution (Phe-Ile) within the sodium channel gene was monitored in order to analyze the effects of the genotype on the pyrethroid...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to describe the genetics of amitraz resistance evolution and to obtain the independent genes number involved. Three Mexican R. microplus tick strains were used, one susceptible to all acaricides and two amitraz-resistant. Larvae were reared on isolated naïve-heifers and...

Abstract

The acaricidal activity of crude extracts and fractions from stems and leaves of Petiveria alliacea (Phytolaccaceae) was carried out on larvae and adults of the cattle tick Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus using the larval immersion test (LIT) and adult immersion test (AIT), respectively....
