Abstract

Some 20 speakers at a one-day workshop on Ixodes holocyclus Neum. in Indooroopilly, Queensland, covered a range of current research on the tick. The size of the tick population in Queensland is probably related to the rainfall in spring and the abundance of bandicoots. The ticks live in gullies...

Abstract

Dogs and cats in coastal Queensland may be infested by Ixodes holocyclus Neum. and Rhipicephalus sanguineus (Latr.). I. holocyclus occurs normally in bushland but may also be picked up on pasture or in vegetable gardens. All stages inject a toxin that may cause paralysis, and a single adult female...

Abstract

Studies in Australia showed that mange in cattle caused by Demodex bovis Stiles is common in five breeds of cattle and in most districts of New South Wales and southern coastal Queensland, with incidences of between 9 and 94%. Animals with numerous large nodules are uncommon, and infestation is...

Abstract

Tick resistance and blood composition were studied in British (Shorthorn X Hereford) and zebu (Brahmam X British) calves from birth to 33 days of age in a tropical grazing area in Queensland in which Boophilus microplus (Can.) is endemic. Calves of the 2 breeds were naturally infested and some...

Abstract

The tick resistance of cattle bred in central Queensland by inseminating Brahman cows with Charolais semen appeared to be slightly less than that of high-grade Brahman cattle, but their superior growth rate indicated that the cross-bred cattle retained a sufficient degree of resistance.

Abstract

In further investigations on the numbers of engorged females of Ixodes holocyclus Neum. needed to induce paralysis in calves in Australia [see RAE/B 64, 2121, etc.], adult female ticks were collected from the field near Brisbane and at Tamborine Mountain, Queensland, and at Lismore, New South...

Abstract

Three new organophosphorus-resistant strains (Bajool, Tully and Ingham) of Boophilus microplus (Can.) are described from central and northern Queensland. In dosage-mortality tests on larvae, all had relatively low levels of resistance but could be distinguished from one another and from other...
