Abstract

Resistance to Boophilus microplus (Can.) was compared in Brahman (Bos indicus) and European (B. taurus) cattle in Queensland. Similar numbers of ticks matured on previously unexposed cattle of both species although development of larvae to engorged females was slower on Brahman than on European ...

Abstract

A survey was carried out in areas of Queensland infested with Boophilus microplus (Can) in 1977-78 to ascertain what methods of tick control were being used by cattle producers and their attitudes to these methods. It was found that during the previous 6 years there has been a large increase in the ...

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

Outbreaks caused by B. argentina, B. bigemina and A. marginale in Queensland between 1 July 1966 and 30 June 1976 were assessed. Of all outbreaks 73% were caused by B. argentina, 21% by A. marginale and 6% by B. bigemina. There is no evidence to indicate that the numbers of outbreaks have undergone ...
