Abstract

The horn fly Haematobia irritans (Linnaeus, 1758) (Diptera: Muscidae) is one of the most important ectoparasites of cattle. The parasitism of horn flies interferes with cattle feeding, thus reducing weight gain and milk production. Additionally, horn flies are mechanical vectors of pathogens that...

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 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...

AbstractFull Text

Cryptosporidium parvum is coccidia, which is the cause agent of diarrheic diseases in several vertebrate species, from new born up to three months old calves. Samples were taken to a total of 381 calves from 54 double purpose production cattle farms from the Municipality of Cuajinicuilapa, in the...

Abstract

To seek unknown molecules and pathways that might be responsible for the pathogenicity of ruminant coccidiosis, the protein expression profiles of Eimeria bovis and Eimeria alabamensis were compared by 2-dimensional gel electrophoresis. The average gel of E. bovis contained 938±132 protein spots...

Abstract

The study was conducted to determine the prevalence of Cryptosporidium spp. and to identify the species or genotype of oocysts found in confined and suckling calves from Aguascalientes, Mexico. Faecal samples were collected from 8-14-day-old calves in eight different dairy farms. The samples were...

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

The aims of the present study were to examine the seroprevalence of neosporosis in beef herds from three southern states of Mexico and determine the association with several risk factors. A cross-sectional serological survey for Neospora caninum was carried out by sampling a total of 596 animals...

Abstract

A cross-sectional study was carried out in order to investigate the association between management risk factors and the prevalence of organophosphate (OP) and synthetic pyrethroid (SP) resistance in Boophilus microplus ticks in Yucatan State, Mexico. Ninety-eight cattle ranches were randomly...
