Abstract

The objectives of the present study were: (i) to identify the frequency of cattle farms with a cohabitation of Amblyomma cajennense and Rhipicephalus microplus, (ii) to determine the status of susceptibility or resistance to acaricides used in Veracruz, Mexico, on A. cajennense populations and...

Abstract

Analyses carried out in Mexico on the aggregation patterns of Boophilus microplus (Can.) and Amblyomma cajennense (F.) are briefly described and discussed. They showed that the basic component of the distribution of A. cajennense is a single individual, and the total burden (the sum of the...

Abstract

The 1-host Boophilus microplus (Can.) and the 3-host Amblyomma cajennense (F.) present serious problems to cattle-raisers in south-eastern Mexico. B. microplus is generally controlled by fortnightly dipping, but the control of A. cajennense is more complex. Studies on the distribution of the 2...
