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...

Abstract

The 1-host Boophilus microplus (Can.) and the 3-host Amblyomma cajennense (F.) present serious problems to cattle-raisers in south-eastern Mexico. B. microplus is generally controlled by fortnightly dipping, but the control of A. cajennense is more complex. Studies on the distribution of the 2...
