Abstract

Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus is an endemic cattle pest in tropical and subtropical regions of the world, causing major economic losses to cattle producers. Chemical acaricides have played a pivotal role in the control of R. (B.) microplus; however, as a consequence of extensive use of...

Abstract

Resistance to synthetic pyrethroids (SP) in the cattle tick Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus is widespread throughout its distribution area. Three single nucleotide substitutions identified in Domains II and III of the sodium channel gene of R. (B.) microplus are known to be associated with...

Abstract

Mutations associated with pyrethroid resistance were found in Mexican strains of Rhipicephalus microplus (Canestrini). A mutation in the sodium channel gene was reported in strains highly resistant to permethrin and another mutation in an esterase gene in a strain that shows moderate resistance to...

Abstract

Ticks are important ectoparasites of domestic and wild animals, and tick infestations economically impact cattle production worldwide. Control of cattle tick infestations has been primarily by application of acaricides which has resulted in selection of resistant ticks and environmental pollution....

Abstract

Amitraz is a rapidly acting acaricide that has been in use for the control of cattle ticks for more than 30 years. Resistance against amitraz was first reported in Boophilus microplus in Australia in 1980 but has been slow to spread in comparison to resistance against synthetic pyrethroids. The...

Abstract

The cattle tick, Boophilus microplus, is a major pest of cattle in Australia, Central and South America, and parts of Africa and Asia. Control of ticks with organophosphates (OPs) and carbamates, which target acetylcholinesterases (AChE), led to evolution of resistance to these pesticides. Alleles...

Abstract

This manuscript provides a summary of the results presented at a symposium organized to accumulate information on factors that influence the prevalence of acaricide resistance and tick-borne diseases. This symposium was part of the 19th International Conference of the World Association for the...

Abstract

Sequence variations in the Bm86 locus of B. microplus were examined using data obtained with B. microplus strains from Australia, Mexico, Cuba, Argentina and Venezuela. The results showed a tendency in the inverse correlation between the efficacy of the vaccination with Bm86 and the sequence...

Abstract

This brief communication reports the identification of microsatellite loci in the economically important tick species B. microplus. The data are potentially useful in distinguishing different strains of B. microplus. Eight polymorphic loci were isolated in larvae, and in male and female adults...

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...
