Abstract

Mating system plays a determinant role in the maintenance and distribution of genetic variation. Difficulties in applying standard methods of indirect inferences onto parasitic life-cycles partly explain the current lack of knowledge on parasite mating systems. The present study develops a...

Abstract

Acaricide resistance is a major problem that hinders the control of the tropical cattle tick, Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus (Canestrini), in many parts of the world where cattle production continues to suffer severe economic losses to tick infestation. Deltamethrin and amitraz have been used...

Abstract

Two field experiments were conducted to evaluate the efficiency of Rusa deer in the development of the cattle tick Boophilus microplus in comparison with that of steers in the same pastures and under the same conditions of infestation. No difference was noted between a mixed steer/deer herd and a...

Abstract

The efficacy of tags impregnated with pheromone and acaricide for control of A. variegatum on cattle in Guadeloupe was examined during a 13-week trial. Comparisons were made between untreated cattle and cattle with tags containing either pheromones alone (o-nitrophenol, methyl salicylate,...

Abstract

A programme of research in integrated control of A. variegatum was initiated in Guadeloupe in 1990 by an IEMVT/INRA group, with the aim of using aggregation-attachment pheromones produced by engorged males to limit tick populations. Experiments carried out in the laboratory and on goats made it...

Abstract

Boophilus microplus, even in the absence of babesiosis, is a major disease of the cattle in New Caledonia where the particular farming system associates continental European breeds and a tropical climate tempered by the Pacific Ocean. In order to have a better understanding of the factors involved...

Abstract

A total of 573 cattle were studied, in Martinique, St. Martin and Guadeloupe. The same Creole breed of zebu cattle predominated both in Martinique and Guadeloupe, but those in Guadeloupe were much more resistant to D. congolensis than those in Martinique, even though Amblyomma tick infestation was...

Abstract

The most important ticks transmitting diseases to ruminants in the Caribbean islands are: Amblyomma variegatum, vector of cowdriosis and associated with acute dermatophilosis; A. cajennense, potential vector of cowdriosis; Boophilus microplus, vector of babesiosis and anaplasmosis. At the present...

Abstract

A severe outbreak of dermatophilosis occurred in 1985 in a herd of Brahman cows imported from Martinique into Guadeloupe in July 1983. Little was known on this disease in Guadeloupe until then, as the local zebu breed has natural high resistance to diseases transmitted by ticks or associated with...

Abstract

A bank of 1300 cattle serum samples from the Lesser Antilles was screened by ELISA for the presence of antibodies to Dermatophilus congolensis. It appeared that seropositive animals do exist in islands not infested by A. variegatum and where dermatophilosis is never or seldom seen. Moreover, there...
