Abstract

Observations of cattle in central and southern Queensland are collated to define the prevalence and area of Stephanofilaria lesions associated with infestations of the buffalo fly, Haematobia irritans exigua. The observations were made on herds that were being used for other purposes. In a survey...

Abstract

Integrated control strategies for Boophilus microplus (Can.) on Zebu X British cattle in southern Queensland are explored using computer modelling. A brief description of the tick population is followed by an investigation of the effectiveness of host resistance as a basis for tick control. Since...

Abstract

The resistance to B. microplus of 4 herds of cattle with different Bos indicus (zebu) content (Hereford; 3/4 Hereford and 1/4 Brahman; 1/2 Hereford and 1/2 Brahman; and Brahman), grazed at each of 2 locations in the subtropics of Queensland was measured using artificial tick infestations at...

Abstract

The numbers of examples of Haemaphysalis longicornis Neum. on cattle (Bos taurus) that had had no prior exposure to the tick were recorded regularly in south-eastern Queensland from July 1971 until January 1974. The tick population was large in the 1st year, but declined to low levels in the 2nd...

Abstract

Females of Boophilus microplus on British breed steers were counted regularly from July 1971 until January 1974 at Mt Tamborine, a cool and moist habitat in south-east Queensland. Larval production was estimated by exposing engorged individuals in pasture at regular intervals. Three generations of...

Abstract

The performance of three control methods for Boophilus microplus (Can.) in Australia, acaricides, pasture spelling and tick resistant cattle, was assessed separately and in combination, using a population model and data obtained in the south-eastern Queensland region. In each case, the optimal...

Abstract

Young Shorthorn and Zebu cattle that had not previously been exposed to ticks (termed 'naive cattle') were each infested in Queensland, Australia, with 500-20 000 larvae of Boophilus microplus (Can.) to ascertain whether density-dependent mortality occurred on cattle that had not acquired...

Abstract

The value of the density dependent term c in the equation M=aLc relating the number of maturing females (M) of Boophilus microplus (Can.) to the number of larvae infesting cattle (L) was compared in the winter and spring of 1974 in south-eastern Queensland. On Zebu crossbred heifers, the mean...

Abstract

Samples of each instar of the 3-host tick Haemaphysalis longicornis Neum. were collected from grazing Bos taurus cattle in Queensland to investigate their survival on hosts with previous exposure to the tick and on previously unexposed 'naive' hosts. The ticks were allocated to categories based on...

Abstract

An analysis, using mathematical models, is presented of the ecological, genetic and economic factors that determine the optimal strategies for the long-term use of chemical control of Boophilus microplus (Can.) on cattle. As an illustration, the control of the tick in south-eastern Queensland is...
