Abstract

The numbers of examples of Haemaphysalis longicornis Neum. on cattle (Bos taurus) that had had no prior exposure to the tick were recorded regularly in south-eastern Queensland from July 1971 until January 1974. The tick population was large in the 1st year, but declined to low levels in the 2nd...

Abstract

The topics dealt with in this article from Queensland on the biology, injuriousness and control of Boophilus microplus (Can.) on cattle in Australia include the biology of this species, and Haemaphysalis longicornis Neum. and Ixodes holocyclus Neum.; cattle ticks and profitability; breeding...

Abstract

The development of amitraz for the control of single-host and multi-host ticks on cattle is reviewed. Recent work carried out in the Mediterranean area on ticks infesting sheep and goats is outlined. In such areas, there are often no facilities for annual treatment and agriculture would benefit...

Abstract

The authors report those findings concerning property management from a survey of tick control on cattle in Queensland in 1977-78 that could affect efficient tick control, and also present a profile of the cattle industry in the infested areas. The survey was concerned mainly with Boophilus...

Abstract

Samples of each instar of the 3-host tick Haemaphysalis longicornis Neum. were collected from grazing Bos taurus cattle in Queensland to investigate their survival on hosts with previous exposure to the tick and on previously unexposed 'naive' hosts. The ticks were allocated to categories based on...

Abstract

Increases were recorded of lengths of larvae, nymphs and females of Haemaphysalis longicornis Neum. during feeding on cattle in Queensland, so that categories could be established for estimating the ages of ticks in natural populations. Most larvae and nymphs engorged in 4 days and females in 5 or...

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...
