Ticks are important ectoparasites of domestic and wild animals, and tick infestations economically impact cattle production worldwide. Control of cattle tick infestations has been primarily by application of acaricides which has resulted in selection of resistant ticks and environmental pollution....

Abstract

In the Neotropics the control of tick infestations in red deer (Cervus elaphus) is achieved primarily through the use of acaricides and macrocyclic lactones. In Mexico, resistance to one or multiple classes of acaricides has been reported in Rhipicephalus microplus infesting cattle, but information ...

Abstract

Analyses carried out in Mexico on the aggregation patterns of Boophilus microplus (Can.) and Amblyomma cajennense (F.) are briefly described and discussed. They showed that the basic component of the distribution of A. cajennense is a single individual, and the total burden (the sum of the...

Abstract

The southern cattle tick, Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus (Canestrini), transmits bovine babesiosis and anaplasmosis, and is endemic to Mexico, Latin and South America. Rhipicephalus (B.) microplus infestations within the United States are a continuing threat to U.S. cattle producers. An...

Abstract

The application of acaricides has been considered for a long time to be the alternative for controlling the cattle tick Boophilus microplus [Rhipicephalus microplus]. However, their use is currently limited in reducing tick infestations due to the appearance of resistant field tick populations....

Abstract

Several cases of babesiosis associated with Boophilus microplus infestations were confirmed in cattle at 2 ranches in northern Mexico. At the first ranch, Babesia bovis infection was confirmed in one cow by inoculation of whole blood into a splenectomized calf which subsequently developed an acute...

AbstractFull Text

The effectiveness and persistence of the Chitinase-Dehydrogenase 5 Enzymatic Complex against natural infestations of Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus was evaluated in bovines of the Mexican tropics. For this purpose, 22 bovines were used which were distributed in two groups of (n=11), receiving...

Abstract

Tick subolesin was shown in immunization trials using the recombinant protein to protect hosts against tick infestations. In this study, we demonstrated that subolesin vaccination and release of ticks after subolesin knockdown by RNA interference (RNAi) could be used for the control of ...

Abstract

For the successful control of Boophilus microplus (Can.) on cattle in the State of Morelos, Mexico, it is suggested that traditional and modern methods need to be integrated. Traditionally, in the dry season, the cattle are normally pastured on maize and sorghum stubble and in the wet season (when...
