Abstract

The distribution of liver fluke in cattle in Florida, USA, is briefly discussed. Losses from liver condemnations in Florida may exceed $500 000 annually. Estimates of costs and benefits of control are presented. It is concluded that even under the most conservative estimates, returns exceed costs....

Abstract

The biology, ecology and control of Stomoxys calcitrans in north-western Florida are reviewed. Differences in biology and ecology between this and other regions are discussed. Control techniques are described, with particular reference to elimination or reduction of larval habitats; results of a...

Abstract

Experiments were conducted on the induction of immunity to Babesia bovis in cattle with antigen extracted from erythrocytes infected with the parasite. Protection after inoculation with crude parasite-erythrocyte stroma mixtures was as strong as that induced by natural infection. B. bovis appears...

Abstract

The incidence of cases of myiasis in cattle caused by larvae of Cochliomyia hominivorax in the south-western USA suggested a failure in the sterile male method of suppression in 1972-76. Estimates of sterile mating frequencies among native females during field trials conducted in Curaçao, Florida,...

Abstract

The morphology of larval spines of Cochliomyia hominivorax was affected by larval substrate and geographic effects on variation. Spine morphology of individual larvae was used to determine criteria for discrimination analysis classification. Classification criteria for types of wounds and host...

Abstract

The results of several studies designed to assess the efficacy of closantel against nematodes in cattle, sheep and horses and against arthropod parasites in domestic animals are presented. The multiple antiparasitic activity of closantel seems to have the common denominator of being expressed...
