Abstract

Common vampire bats (Desmodus rotundus) occur throughout much of South America to northern México. Vampire bats have not been documented in recent history in the United States, but have been documented within about 50 km of the U.S. state of Texas. Vampire bats feed regularly on the blood of...

Abstract

The objectives of this study were to characterize rectal temperature and coat score under subtropical North American summer conditions for straightbred and crossbred Romosinuano, Brahman, and Angus cattle, to estimate heterosis and breed direct and maternal effects in a subset of those, and to...

Abstract

The residual effectiveness against laboratory-reared females of Anopheles quadrimaculatus of a synthetic pyrethroid (permethrin) applied to cattle in Florida was determined. 24-h post-exposure mortality and the degree of successful blood engorgement were determined by exposing mosquitoes for 10 min ...

Abstract

Adults of Haematobia irritans could not be maintained below 50 per animal (Angus or Brangus cows, calves or yearling heifers) with insecticidal sprays or dusts during a 21-week study in 1986 in Florida. However, weights of cows and calves and condition scores of cows were not influenced by...

Abstract

In Florida, a refillable ear tag (Morgan Rechargeable Ear Tag) charged with 20% (a.i.) diazinon or 10% permethrin with 40% piperonyl butoxide kept horn flies (Haematobia irritans) below 200 flies per animal for 12 weeks. The average release rate of insecticide from tags was 0.052 g per day during...

Abstract

A grid was drawn on a lateral half of 10 hides, from cattle infected with both O. gutturosa and O. lienalis, which were obtained from an abattoir in central Florida, USA. Paired 7-mm diameter skin cores were taken from 24 grid sites on each hide and microfilariae (mf) extracted to determine their...

Abstract

Daily pickup rates of Amblyomma americanum by pastured Zebu, British, or Zebu × British beef cattle were not significantly different (P = 0.05). At a host stocking density of 1 steer/0.4 ha, pickup rates for adult ticks averaged 0.48% (±0.42) in June 1986 and 4.01% (±2.24) between April and July...

Abstract

Insecticide resistance development in 3 continuous exposure livestock insect control systems is discussed. These include residual pyrethroid sprays and cyromazine feed-through for houseflies (Musca domestica), and insecticide cattle ear tags for horn flies (Haematobia irritans). All 3 of these...

Abstract

Different kinds of dispersal behaviour shown by Stomoxys calcitrans populations in the southeastern USA are described. Adults tended to group at sites used by cattle. Flies emigrated from these groups in smaller numbers than indicated by Williams trap results. Adults were spatially distributed...

Abstract

Adult H. lagenorhynchi were collected from the lungs of 4 T. truncatus calves. The calves ranged in age from newborn to 3-weeks-old and were found on both the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of Florida, USA. This finding suggests the possibility of a more cosmopolitan distribution of prenatal infection...
