Abstract

The cattle fever tick, Rhipicephalus annulatus (Say), is an economically destructive arthropod because of its ability to vector bovine babesiosis. Cattle fever ticks can spend more than 90% of their life cycle as questing larvae, but the effect of climatic factors on their off-host behavior and...

Abstract

This paper highlights the immense progress that has been made in veterinary entomology, demonstrates that highly significant pest issues persist in animal agriculture, and points out that academic programmes in veterinary entomology are in serious trouble in the USA and Canada. As examples, the...

Abstract

Background: For >100 years cattle production in the southern United States has been threatened by cattle fever. It is caused by an invasive parasite-vector complex that includes the protozoan hemoparasites Babesia bovis and B. bigemina, which are transmitted among domestic cattle via Rhipicephalus...

Abstract

From 1907 when the fever tick eradication campaign began until 1933, the tick eradication methods of dipping cattle in an acaricide or "pasture vacation" were enormously successful in eradicating southern cattle ticks [Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus (Canestrini)], until failures began to occur ...

Abstract

Species identification and global positioning system coordinates of infestations of cattle fever ticks, Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) annulatus (Say) and Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus (Canestrini), were determined for 790 specimens submitted to the National Veterinary Services Laboratory between...

Abstract

We review recent progress for control of Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus and R. (B.) annulatus. Outbreak infestations in the U.S. have reached alarming levels, due to increased populations of deer and other ungulates serving as alternative hosts. GIS mapping of infestations and deer habitat...

Abstract

The efficacy of an injectable microsphere formulation of ivermectin for control of B. annulatus was tested on 2 groups of 6 Hereford heifers held on separate 7-ha, tick-infested pastures in Texas, USA. Cattle in one pasture were injected subcutaneously in the neck with a controlled-release...

Abstract

We modified an existing simulation model to evaluate detection of cattle-fever ticks (Boophilus annulatus and Boophilus microplus) infesting rangeland in the semi-arid thornshrublands of south Texas. This model contained submodels representing (1) tick development in a pasture and (2) tick...

Abstract

To evaluate the relative influence of ecological and management factors on the probability of detecting cattle-fever tick (Boophilus microplus and Boophilus annulatus) infestations in rotational grazing systems, we adapted a simulation model of Teel et al. [J. Range Manage. 51 (1998) 501] that...

Abstract

An 11.6% emulsifiable concentrate of phosmet (Prolate) was evaluated in a dipping vat to determine its stability and other characteristics pertaining to management of the product in a vat in which large numbers of cattle were processed (in Texas, USA). A separate trial was done to determine...
