Abstract

Wildlife, both native and introduced, can harbor and spread diseases of importance to the livestock industry. Describing movement patterns of such wildlife is essential to formulate effective disease management strategies. Nilgai antelope (Boselaphus tragocamelus) are a free-ranging, introduced...

Abstract

Rickettsial infection in dog-associated ticks in three rural communities of Yucatan, Mexico was investigated using qPCR and nested PCR assays. A total of 319 dogs were studied and ticks samples were collected. A total of 170 dogs were infested with ticks (frequency of 53.4%). Overall, 1,380 ticks...

Abstract

Rhipicephalus microplus, the cattle fever tick, is a global economic problem to the cattle industry due to direct infestation of cattle and pathogens transmitted during feeding. Cattle fever tick outbreaks continue to occur along the Mexico-US border even though the tick has been eradicated from...

Abstract

Engorged females of Rhipicephalus microplus were collected from 30 cattle farms in Yucatan, Mexico to evaluate ivermectin resistance. The larval progeny of each tick sample were produced in laboratory and evaluated using the larval immersion test to obtain the larval mortality....

Abstract

In the Neotropics the control of tick infestations in red deer (Cervus elaphus) is achieved primarily through the use of acaricides and macrocyclic lactones. In Mexico, resistance to one or multiple classes of acaricides has been reported in Rhipicephalus microplus infesting cattle, but information ...

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 objectives of this study were to determine the tick species, number and distribution on body regions, and their relationship to the total number of ticks in Tropical Milking Criollo cattle. Twenty-eight heifers and 16 young bulls (655±35 and 741±89 days old) from an experimental herd located in ...
