Abstract

During a survey on cattle tick control carried out in Queensland in 1977-78, investigations were made into chemical control employed by producers. The frequency of dipping and its correlation with region, property size and type, breed and age of cattle were noted, together with the dipping schedule ...

Abstract

The measures currently used for the control of Boophilus microplus (Can.) on beef and dairy cattle in Queensland are described and discussed on the basis of the literature. These measures are strategic dipping with acaricides, use of resistant cattle and vaccination against tick fever. Because of...

Ticks and tick-borne diseases. Proceedings of a symposium held at the 56th annual conference of the Australian Veterinary Association, Townsville, 14-18 May 1979., 1980, pp 39-43
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

Experiments were carried out in Queensland to explore the possible relationship between cattle, Rhipicephalus sanguineus (Latr.) and Anaplasma marginale. Calves' ears were exposed to larval, nymphal and adult ticks on 8, 9 and 7 occasions, respectively. The immature ticks fed readily, but the...

Abstract

In a discussion on the environmental limitations to dairy farming in Queensland, it is reported that external parasites of cattle, especially cattle tick [Boophilus microplus (Can.)] are the main impediments. Information, including breed characteristics, is provided on 7 breeds of cattle in...

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

This article on deer farming in Queensland includes a report that some deaths of red deer on farms there were attributed to excessive burdens of Boophilus microplus (Can.). Most of these losses occurred when deer farmers trapped red deer before constructing adequate deer yards. When red deer are...

Abstract

In a field test in Queensland in 1975-76, 22 first-cross Brahman X Hereford cattle about 1 year old were dipped at intervals of about 22 days in a preparation of promacyl [3-methyl-5-(1-methyl-ethyl)phenyl methyl(1-oxobutyl)carbamate] for the control of cattle ticks [Boophilus microplus (Can.)]....

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...
