Abstract

The failure to date to achieve satisfactory control of Boophilus microplus (Can.) on cattle in Brazil is outlined and the reasons for this, which include under-dosing with acaricides and the consequent rapid build-up of resistance in the ticks, are discussed. The need for an official and obligatory ...
