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 Cattle Fever Tick Eradication Program was the first parasite eradication program of veterinary importance in the United States and is considered to be one of the greatest disease eradication programs of all time. The program's utilization of pasture vacation and dipping of cattle in acaricide...

Abstract

Rhipicephalus microplus, the cattle fever tick, is a global economic problem to the cattle industry due to direct infestation of cattle and pathogens transmitted during feeding. Cattle fever tick outbreaks continue to occur along the Mexico-US border even though the tick has been eradicated from...

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

Collections of Amblyomma auricularium and A. pseudoconcolor Aragão, 1908 are discussed in relation to distribution and hosts. Three tick collections (two from Argentina and a third from the USA) house a total of 574 A. auricularium (307 males, 162 females, 73 nymphs and 32 larvae) and 179 A....

Abstract

The conventional method of identifying acaricide resistance in a suspect tick population by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization packet assay is a laborious and time-consuming process. DNA probes have been demonstrated as rapid and accurate tools for detecting pesticide resistance...

Abstract

The work of the Veterinary Services Branch of USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) at McAllen, Texas, in controlling the cattle fever tick [Boophilus annulatus] on cattle entering the US from Mexico is briefly described. Measures include visual and hands-on inspection followed...

Abstract

A simulation model of Boophilus annulatus and B. microplus population dynamics on rangelands of the northeastern Mexico-USA border region was modified to examine spatial and temporal dynamics of ticks in rotational grazing systems. 5 short-duration grazing rotations in an 8-pasture system were...

Abstract

Integration of temporal and spatial factors controlling host-landscape interactions is essential to development of systems perspectives important to the management of animal parasites. A simulation model based upon factors regulating distribution and population dynamics of B. annulatus and B....

Abstract

The closely related cattle ticks, B. microplus and B. annulatus, were tested for possible assortative mating under conditions designed to mimic those in the field. Patterns in the numbers of the 4 possible types of matings were generally indicative of a preference for conspecific mates in both...
