Abstract

Here, economic losses caused by cattle parasites in Mexico were estimated on an annual basis. The main factors taken into consideration for this assessment included the total number of animals at risk, potential detrimental effects of parasitism on milk production or weight gain, and records of...

Abstract

The horn fly Haematobia irritans (Linnaeus, 1758) (Diptera: Muscidae) is one of the most important ectoparasites of cattle. The parasitism of horn flies interferes with cattle feeding, thus reducing weight gain and milk production. Additionally, horn flies are mechanical vectors of pathogens that...

Abstract

Bovine anaplasmosis due to Anaplasma marginale is responsible for substantial economic losses in livestock production of developing countries. Vaccine development is hampered by wide genetic and antigenic diversity in strains of distant geographical areas. The objective of this study was to compare ...

Abstract

Acaricidal activity of essential oils extracted from cumin seeds (Cuminum cyminum), allspice berries (Pimenta dioica) and basil leaves (Ocimum basilicum) were tested on 10-day-old Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus tick larvae using the LPT. Two-fold dilutions of the three essential oils were...

Abstract

The application of acaricides has been considered for a long time to be the alternative for controlling the cattle tick Boophilus microplus [Rhipicephalus microplus]. However, their use is currently limited in reducing tick infestations due to the appearance of resistant field tick populations....

Abstract

Control of anaplasmosis is limited due to the rickettsia's wide genetic diversity. Major surface protein (Msp) 1a is composed of one constant region and a variable region which may contain one or more 23-31 aminoacid repeat sequences. Msp1a variable region together with Msp4 have been used for...

Abstract

The cattle tick Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus is the most economically important ectoparasite affecting the cattle industry in tropical and subtropical areas around the world. The principal method of tick control has relied mainly on the use of chemical acaricides, including ivermectin;...

Abstract

The influence of host presence on the percentage of Boophilus microplus larvae recovery from experimentally infested plots with 3 grass species was examined in a trial carried out in Jiutepec, Morelos, Mexico, during autumn 1999 and winter 1999-2000. Four sampling methods were compared: human...

AbstractFull Text

Cryptosporidium parvum is coccidia, which is the cause agent of diarrheic diseases in several vertebrate species, from new born up to three months old calves. Samples were taken to a total of 381 calves from 54 double purpose production cattle farms from the Municipality of Cuajinicuilapa, in the...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to describe the genetics of amitraz resistance evolution and to obtain the independent genes number involved. Three Mexican R. microplus tick strains were used, one susceptible to all acaricides and two amitraz-resistant. Larvae were reared on isolated naïve-heifers and...
