Abstract

Background: In Colombia, the control of tick infestation in cattle is almost exclusively performed with chemical acaricides. It is important to determine the degree of resistance of Riphicephalus microplus field populations to ivermectins (IVM) as the first step to design strategies to increase the ...

AbstractFull Text

Cattle ranching systems have traditionally been studied based on Cartesian research models that break them down into each of their constitutive parts. For this reason, definition of biophysical and technical-productive parameters dominates knowledge in this area, but does not allow a complex vision ...

Abstract

Problems related to parasitosis, such as ectoparasites, including ticks, are broad and important in veterinary practice due to increasing resistance of the indiscriminate use of acaricides. The present study corresponded to a survey on cattle tick (Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus)...

Abstract

In Antioquia, the problems to control Rhipicephalus microplus (Canestrini, 1888) tick infestations have spread and ranchers claim conventional treatments are no longer effective. In this study, the in vitro efficacy of commercial topical products was tested with ticks obtained from two dairy farms...

AbstractFull Text

Anaplasma and Ehrlichia species are important tick-borne pathogens that cause disease in cattle, dogs, horses and humans; with little information available about these agents in Colombia. The aim of this study was to provide molecular evidence for the presence of Anaplasma sp. and Ehrlichia sp....

Abstract

Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus ticks cause significant economic losses to the Colombian cattle sector: reduction in meat and milk production, blood losses and transmission of blood parasites. The degree of infestation depends on the breed, physiological state and nutrition of the animal and on ...
