Abstract

The cattle fever tick, Rhipicephalus microplus (Canestrini) (Acari: Ixodidae), is a one-host tick that infests primarily cattle in tropical and sub-tropical regions of the world. This species transmits deadly cattle pathogens, especially Babesia spp., for which a recombinant vaccine is not...

Abstract

The southern cattle tick, Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus (Canestrini), transmits bovine babesiosis and anaplasmosis, and is endemic to Mexico, Latin and South America. Rhipicephalus (B.) microplus infestations within the United States are a continuing threat to U.S. cattle producers. An...

Abstract

Aim: Climate change has the potential to have an impact on the distribution of ticks and tick-borne diseases. This paper identifies the changes in climate suitability for the tick Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus in the Americas by analysing climate data for the period 1950-99. Location: The...

Abstract

A comprehensive computer model was developed for simulation of the population dynamics of B. microplus and B. annulatus. The model is deterministic and based on a dynamic life table with weekly time steps. The model simulates the effects of major environmental variables, such as ambient...

Abstract

In Central America, the economic loss in cattle infested with D. hominis and ticks can be over $60 per animal. An intensive campaign against these parasites would cost an estimated $4.5-5 per animal yearly. The author carried out trials with 4 parasiticides in a small number of cattle in Costa...

Abstract

The Australian cattle tick, Boophilus annulatus var. Australis Fuller, has been recorded in Texas for the first time in the United States of America. It is widely distributed, however, in South America and occurs as far north as Mexico. It is considered probable that this tick was introduced into...

Abstract

" Boophilus australis (cattle tick) may affect the health of cattle in two distinct ways, namely by conveying tick fever and by the irritation, etc., caused by its presence. This fact of the tick being capable of giving rise to sickness per se by gross infestation, has not always been recognised,...
