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...

AbstractFull Text

A total of 54 Diptera were caught via insect net over the course of four weeks at the Texas A&M Beef Cattle Center. Both weather and time of day affected whether the collectors were able to collect specimens. Once the Diptera were collected, they were identified as Musca species, Calliphoridae or ...

Abstract

Differences in weight gains caused by stable flies, Stomoxys calcitrans (L.), on grazing yearling steer/calves averaged 0.2 kg per steer in a 3-yr study on canyon range pastures in West Central Nebraska. Stable fly numbers averaged 0.85 per front leg on treated calves and 3.64 per front leg on...

Abstract

Ear and tail tapes containing ampules of viscous preparations of permethrin were applied to the tails of beef and dairy cattle in trials conducted in Florida. Adults of Haematobia irritans were controlled for 9 weeks on beef cattle and 4 weeks on dairy cattle. When applied to the tail, the same...

Abstract

A model was developed to evaluate the effects of high populations of stable flies [Stomoxys calcitrans] on cattle feed intake and rate of liveweight gain, using data collected in Nebraska in 1984. The behavioural response of cattle to S. calcitrans is to bunch or huddle together, reducing access of ...

Abstract

Physiological and nutritional responses were measured in (predominantly Angus) beef steers exposed to laboratory infestations of Stomoxys calcitrans. Calves (n = 6 per treatment) were infested with 4 levels of stable flies for 3 periods daily (15 min each period) for 14 days. Steers exposed to 0,...

Abstract

The author reviews arthropod-induced stress in cattle, particularly by flies and lice in North America. He discusses possible direct economic losses due to the arthropods, as well as indirect losses due to the stress of treatment and the synergistic effects of severe weather and infestations. An...

Abstract

Ear tags impregnated with flucythrinate and ear tapes containing permethrin provided control of adults of Haematobia irritans for 17 and 15 weeks, respectively, on dairy cattle in Florida in 1983. Adults of Stomoxys calcitrans were controlled for 10 weeks. On beef cattle, 7 weeks were required for...

Abstract

Data pooled from 3 individual trials conducted in Nebraska, with average populations of 2.58, 5.21 and 7.07 adults of Stomoxys calcitrans per leg, indicated a significant reduction in weight gains and a decrease in feed efficiency among feedlot cattle. Graphs of pooled data and previously reported...
