Abstract

A variety of pathways exist for the introduction of nonindigenous insects, ticks, and mites of veterinary importance into the United States. The most prominent includes the natural migration of mosquitoes and flies by the flight of adults, ectoparasites entering the country on wildlife transport...

Abstract

The economic benefits of horn fly (Haematobia irritans) control on 87 cows (Brangus and Simmental-Angus) located in Homer, Louisiana, USA, was evaluated during 1991-93. In the spring of each year, fly populations on autumn-calving cows were reduced by an average of 82% for a 12-week period using...

Abstract

An 11.6% emulsifiable concentrate of phosmet (Prolate) was evaluated in a dipping vat to determine its stability and other characteristics pertaining to management of the product in a vat in which large numbers of cattle were processed (in Texas, USA). A separate trial was done to determine...

Abstract

A strain of B. microplus was selected for resistance to permethrin by pressuring larvae with increasing doses (range, 0.05-0.35% a.i.) through successive generations (generations F2-F7). At the beginning of the selection process (F2), the pyrethroid resistant (PR) strain was 5.4 times more...

Abstract

Strict enforcement of cattle quarantine, developed during the national cattle fever tick eradication campaign, blocked the reintroduction and dissemination of Boophilus microplus and B. annulatus northwards from southern Texas. However, reliance on coumaphos dips and pasture vacation was now...

Abstract

This study was designed to define lower thermal limits for H. lineatum egg development. The data collected in this study suggested that embryonic development was prolonged as temperature was lowered. No hatch was observed when eggs were incubated at a constant temperature of 20°C. Measurements of ...

Abstract

This textbook, aimed mainly at veterinary students and practising veterinarians, should also be of interest to medical entomologists, parasitologists and those working in related livestock disciplines. It concentrates on the arthropod ectoparasites of most significance in temperate northern Europe...

Abstract

Sympatric bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis, n = 31), mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus, n = 38), and domestic cattle (n = 26) in the San Bernardino Mountains of southern California (USA) were sampled for the presence of Psoroptes spp. mites and for serological evidence of exposure to bluetongue virus...

Abstract

Three experimental infestations of a herd of 27 cattle with H. lineatum are described during a 4-year period (1991-95). The mean percentage of survival of larvae during internal migration was 67.7% in the initial infestation. In the 2nd infestation 1 year later, the mean percentage of survival of...
