AbstractFull Text

The present study was conducted to record tick infestation on bovines (cattle and buffalo) during February 2018 to January 2019 in three districts (Bidar, Gulbarga and Yadgir) of Hyderabad-Karnataka region of Karnataka. A total of 1570 bovines (720 cattle and 850 buffaloes) were examined for tick...

Abstract

Despite several decades of chemical control, the cattle tick Rhipicephalus microplus remains an important constraint for cattle farmers. The regular use of chemicals has led to the development of tick strains that are multi-resistant to acaricides. New methods of tick control are being developed...

Abstract

This study aimed to determine the relationship between the variation in plasma concentration of ivermectin 3.15% over time and its efficacy against the cattle tick Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus. In addition, a trial was conducted to infer if the application of successive treatments with...

Abstract

Given the difficulties of controlling the tick Rhipicephalus microplus due to acaricide resistance, this study aimed to ascertain whether shearing could reduce infestation in cattle. 17 taurine cattle were sheared on the anterior third of one randomly selected side. Shearing was undertaken using a...

Abstract

This work was performed to test the efficacy of winter-spring control strategies against Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus (Ixodida: Ixodidae) infestations on cattle in the area ecologically most favourable for the development of this tick in Argentina. Two control schemes using three and four...

Abstract

Inclusion of cattle genetic resistance to ticks in selection programs represents an auxiliary method in strategic control of this parasite. This study was conducted to estimate genetic parameters for cattle tick resistance measured by tick counting on the inner hind legs region (TCHL) and on one...

Abstract

Use of acaricides is one of the key strategies to protect cattle herds on pasture against tick infestation with Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus. Unfortunately, the constant exposure to drugs has led to a selection of resistance to most of the chemical classes. Under these conditions it is even...

Abstract

Resistance to cattle tick infestation in single-host ticks is primarily manifested against the larval stage and results in the immature tick failing to attach successfully and obtain a meal. This study was conducted to identify immune responses that characterize the tick-resistant phenotype in ...

Abstract

The cattle tick Rhipicephalus microplus causes significant economic losses to cattle production systems and is a main barrier to the introduction of Bos taurus breeds and their crosses in Brazil. These breeds have the genetic potential to generate animals that are more productive, but they are also ...

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...
