Abstract

Some basic concepts in animal behaviour which influence handling techniques are discussed. Movement of cattle, pigs and sheep on foot at the farm, market or abattoir using raceways and handling systems are examined with reference to experimental work involving mirrors, photographs and films, blind...

Abstract

Information is given on how the population model, T3HOST, can be used as an aid to pest management in assessing the effects of host resistance, pasture spelling, game animals and strategic dipping on the numbers of Rhipicephalus appendiculatus infesting cattle in Africa. The cost effectiveness of...

Abstract

The basic structure and use of a general programme (TICK2) for modelling tick ecology and the epidemiology of tick-borne diseases is given. Its primary purpose is to serve as a framework in which to incorporate and test knowledge of the ecology of ticks and their livestock hosts. The model is...

Abstract

The basic concepts which affect the relationship between biting flies and their livestock hosts are discussed, particularly with regard to models based on injury thresholds and economic injury levels based on ecological parameters and population dynamics. Specific details of host-parasite...

Abstract

The author reviews methods of monitoring the epidemiology of tick-borne diseases in livestock in Africa, primarily from the perspective of a model maker. The following subjects are discussed: the incidence and prevalence of tick-borne diseases in host populations, the sampling methods used to...

Abstract

Blagg's method, Willis' salt flotation, McMaster's and direct examination using Lugol solution were compared for their efficiency in detecting Giardia in faeces. Blagg's method performed best, identifying Giardia in 50% of 200 goats, 20% of 47 sheep and 5% of 40 calves tested. Lugol solution tested ...

Abstract

The author discusses the type of data required to model factors affecting the host-finding phase of ticks after moulting but prior to finding a host. Methods of interpreting data are given and there is a short review of field-data available for Rhipicephalus appendiculatus, Amblyomma variegatum, A. ...

Abstract

The author discusses the type of ecological data required to model factors affecting the parasitic phase of ticks on livestock, such as the time spent on the host, the amount of blood ingested, the amount and type of foreign material introduced into the host (including tick-borne diseases) and the...

Abstract

Information is given on the data required to use the T3HOST model to analyse control strategies for cost effective pest management of ticks, especially Rhipicephalus appendiculatus in Africa. The roles of host resistance, vaccination, dipping and animal density and movements are discussed.
