Abstract

As a result of shifts in the habitable range of ticks due to climate change and the ongoing threat of exotic tick species introductions, efficient surveillance tools for these pests and disease vectors are needed. Wild pigs are habitat generalists, distributed throughout most of the United States,...

Abstract

From 1907 when the fever tick eradication campaign began until 1933, the tick eradication methods of dipping cattle in an acaricide or "pasture vacation" were enormously successful in eradicating southern cattle ticks [Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus (Canestrini)], until failures began to occur ...

Abstract

Before the eradication of Boophilus ticks from the United States, Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus (Canestrini) and Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) annulatus (Say) were important biological vectors of the cattle pathogen Anaplasma marginale Theiler. In the absence of Boophilus ticks, A. marginale...

Abstract

The failure of the 1956-57 tick eradication campaign in New South Wales was attributed to the wet summer, survival of ticks on head and ears of dipped cattle, and on calves born shortly after dipping, doubtful correlation between chemical analysis and biological efficiency of "Rucide", and...

Abstract

In one part of Florida, Boophilusmicroplus was found on cattle in 1957 and was believed to have been eradicated the following year. But the tick re-appeared in the same area in May 1960 and plans to eradicate it and prevent its spread are in operation, Rhipicephalus evertsi was found in Florida in...

Abstract

Dimethoate (Am. Cyanamid 12, 880) used i/m as a 50% soln. at 25 mg./kg. gave very good control of Oestrus ovis, especially in the first instar, but this compound is only available experimentally so far.
Boophilus microplus ticks were found in Florida and all affected farms quarantined; the final...

Abstract

Many diseases of cattle affect deer, the young being most susceptible. The main losses are due to malnutrition and parasitic infestations.
The grazing of cattle and sheep over or adjacent to range areas used by deer infects the pasture with intestinal and other helminths which cause losses either...

Abstract

Spraying cattle in a chute with a many-nozzled power spray was the most practicable method of application, though less effective than dipping. Persistence of insecticide on the animal's coat was greatly reduced by the hot, humid summer climate of Florida, with its almost daily heavy rain, but...

Abstract

An account is given of experiments carried out in southern Florida from the middle of July to the middle of September 1945 on the use of DDT for the control of the horn-fly, Siphona irritans[Haematobia irritans], L., on range cattle. The tests involved 8, 402 cattle in 36 herds. No horn-flies were...
