Abstract

This study aimed to verify the influence of bovine genetic resistance on biological traits of the Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus tick. Genetic resistance or susceptibility was determined according to breeding values for tick counts, predicted using a dataset of 9007 Hereford and Braford...

Abstract

Anaplasma marginale is an obligate intracellular pathogen that infects the erythrocytes of calves, causing bovine anaplasmosis. This rickettsia is biologically transmitted by several species of ticks. In tropical and subtropical regions of the world, Rhipicephalus microplus is the main vector. Due...

Abstract

Tick bites promote activation of an inflammatory process that is influenced by bovine genetic composition and its history of previous exposure. Taurine and indicine breeds are known to differ on its immune response development against Rhipicephalus microplus. Nevertheless, further investigation...

Abstract

The Rhipicephalus microplus tick is globally regarded as the most economically important ectoparasite of livestock, and the evolution of resistance to commercial acaricides among cattle tick populations is of great concern. The essential oil derived from Tagetes minuta may be efficacious against ...

Abstract

The bionomics of four ixodid ticks viz., Hyalomma marginatum isaaci, Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus, Rhipicephalus haemaphysaloides and Haemaphysalis bispinosa were studied under laboratory condition. Soviet Chinchilla rabbits were used as host for all species of ticks except for Rhipicephalus ...
