Abstract

Acaricidal activity of essential oils extracted from cumin seeds (Cuminum cyminum), allspice berries (Pimenta dioica) and basil leaves (Ocimum basilicum) were tested on 10-day-old Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus tick larvae using the LPT. Two-fold dilutions of the three essential oils were...

Abstract

The application of acaricides has been considered for a long time to be the alternative for controlling the cattle tick Boophilus microplus [Rhipicephalus microplus]. However, their use is currently limited in reducing tick infestations due to the appearance of resistant field tick populations....

Abstract

The influence of host presence on the percentage of Boophilus microplus larvae recovery from experimentally infested plots with 3 grass species was examined in a trial carried out in Jiutepec, Morelos, Mexico, during autumn 1999 and winter 1999-2000. Four sampling methods were compared: human...

Abstract

The cattle tick Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus is the most economically important ectoparasite affecting the cattle industry in tropical and subtropical areas around the world. The principal method of tick control has relied mainly on the use of chemical acaricides, including ivermectin;...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to describe the genetics of amitraz resistance evolution and to obtain the independent genes number involved. Three Mexican R. microplus tick strains were used, one susceptible to all acaricides and two amitraz-resistant. Larvae were reared on isolated naïve-heifers and...

Abstract

The objective of this work was to study the reproductive behavior of two strains of R. (B.) microplus, one wild-caught (Native) and one reference strain (Media Joya) for two years, measuring the reproductive efficiency index (REI) and reproductive aptitude index (RAI). Engorged ticks from each...

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of amitraz selection pressure on the development of resistance in field populations of Boophilus microplus in the Mexican tropics. Three farms (FA1, FA2 and FA3) in Yucatan, Mexico, were selected in this study. Amitraz was applied as a whole...

Abstract

Southern cattle tick, Boophilus microplus, control in the Mexican tropics is based on the application by spray, dip or pour-on of acaricides. In Mexico the first report of ticks resistant to amitraz was reported in 2002. Amitraz resistance affecting the cattle industry of Yucatan State, Mexico, has ...

Abstract

Susceptibility to synthetic pyrethroids (SP's) and the role of two major resistance mechanisms were evaluated in Mexican Rhipicephalus microplus tick populations. Larval packet test (LPT), knock-down (kdr) PCR allele-specific assay (PASA) and esterase activity assays were conducted in tick...

Abstract

Dialelic crosses and backcrosses of pyrethroid resistant (RR) and susceptible (SS) Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus tick strains were carried out and the substitution (Phe-Ile) within the sodium channel gene was monitored in order to analyze the effects of the genotype on the pyrethroid...
