Abstract

The measures currently used for the control of Boophilus microplus (Can.) on beef and dairy cattle in Queensland are described and discussed on the basis of the literature. These measures are strategic dipping with acaricides, use of resistant cattle and vaccination against tick fever. Because of...

Abstract

Integrated control strategies for Boophilus microplus (Can.) on Zebu X British cattle in southern Queensland are explored using computer modelling. A brief description of the tick population is followed by an investigation of the effectiveness of host resistance as a basis for tick control. Since...

Abstract

Experiments were carried out in Queensland to explore the possible relationship between cattle, Rhipicephalus sanguineus (Latr.) and Anaplasma marginale. Calves' ears were exposed to larval, nymphal and adult ticks on 8, 9 and 7 occasions, respectively. The immature ticks fed readily, but the...

Abstract

The performance of three control methods for Boophilus microplus (Can.) in Australia, acaricides, pasture spelling and tick resistant cattle, was assessed separately and in combination, using a population model and data obtained in the south-eastern Queensland region. In each case, the optimal...

Abstract

It is reported that cattle ticks [Boophilus microplus (Can.)] from a property in central Queensland have been found to be resistant to the amidine group of dipping acaricides, a group that includes chloromethiuron (Dipofene), amitraz (Taktic) and Tifatol...

Abstract

In a field test in Queensland in 1975-76, 22 first-cross Brahman X Hereford cattle about 1 year old were dipped at intervals of about 22 days in a preparation of promacyl [3-methyl-5-(1-methyl-ethyl)phenyl methyl(1-oxobutyl)carbamate] for the control of cattle ticks [Boophilus microplus (Can.)]....

Abstract

Transmission of Babesia bovis by Boophilus microplus (Can.) was studied in 4 breeding herds of European and Zebu X European cattle in Queensland under different levels of tick infestation in 4 pastures on one station. The observations consisted of weekly counts of female ticks on the cattle,...

Abstract

In a discussion on the environmental limitations to dairy farming in Queensland, it is reported that external parasites of cattle, especially cattle tick [Boophilus microplus (Can.)] are the main impediments. Information, including breed characteristics, is provided on 7 breeds of cattle in...

Abstract

Young Shorthorn and Zebu cattle that had not previously been exposed to ticks (termed 'naive cattle') were each infested in Queensland, Australia, with 500-20 000 larvae of Boophilus microplus (Can.) to ascertain whether density-dependent mortality occurred on cattle that had not acquired...

Abstract

Tick counts and live weights of 74 steers and 56 heifers (Bos indicus X Bos taurus), aged 8-12 months initially, were determined after challenge by a field infestation of Boophilus microplus at 4 sites in coastal Queensland. Mean tick counts were low, 3.9-5.5 ticks per side, but peak counts reached ...
