AbstractFull Text

Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus infestation is responsible for significant economic losses in cattle industry. The use of acaricides at strategic times and selection of resistant animals can minimize economic losses. This study aimed to determine the anatomical distribution and population...

AbstractFull Text

The present study evaluated the behavior of Rhipicephalus microplus naturally infesting Brangus cattle raised with Nellore animals in the municipality of Água Clara, state of Mato Grosso do Sul, Central Brazil. For the field experiment composed of a group with 15 Brangus animals and 15 Nellore...

Abstract

The Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus is the main cattle tick, responsible for large losses in Brazilian cattle. Control of R. (B.) microplus relies almost exclusively on the use of chemicals. But increasingly this species of tick has shown resistance to products used mainly by the poor use of...

Abstract

Inclusion of cattle genetic resistance to ticks in selection programs represents an auxiliary method in strategic control of this parasite. This study was conducted to estimate genetic parameters for cattle tick resistance measured by tick counting on the inner hind legs region (TCHL) and on one...

Abstract

Babesia bovis is the etiological agent of bovine babesiosis, a disease transmitted by Rhipicephalus microplus, which affects cattle herds in tropical and subtropical regions of the world, causing significant economic losses due to decreasing meat and milk yield. This study used molecular techniques ...

AbstractFull Text

Rhipicephalus microplus tick is responsible for large economic losses in the national livestock, mainly due to the reduction in the productive performance of cattle, with damages estimated at billions of dollars per year. The tick is not only a haematophagous ectoparasite, but also a vector of...

Abstract

The southern cattle fever tick, Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus, spends as much as 80-90% of its life cycle as a larva questing for a host. Standard control methods are limited to on-host applications, leaving a need for methods directed at the pasture infesting stages. Reports from Brazil...

Abstract

In Brazil, recent studies have reported viruses detected in ticks with pathogenic potential in vertebrate hosts. Ticks of the species Rhipicephalus microplus collected from bovines in a savannah area were tested by RT-PCR for the presence of RNA targetting a segment of NS3-like protein gene of ...

Abstract

The tropical cattle tick, Rhipicephalus microplus, is one of the most damaging parasites that affects cattle in tropical and subtropical regions in the world. Tick resistance to acaricides is dispersed worldwide and a number of associated mutations in target site genes have been described....

Abstract

The objective of the present study was to evaluate the performance of Brangus and Nellore cattle in an extensive production system. Sixty growing bulls, 30 of the Brangus and 30 of the Nellore breeds that were naturally infested with Rhipicephalus microplus were subdivided into four groups: control ...
