Abstract

It is concluded from a review of published and unpublished work in Australia that the introduction of tick-resistant Zebu-cross cattle has reduced Boophilus microplus (Can.) from a pest capable of causing a major national disaster in the beef industry to one that poses manageable problems.

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

An account is given of a deterministic computer model (T3HOST) which models changes in populations of Rhipicephalus appendiculatus induced by ecological factors. All rates of change are predicted from climatic values and density-dependent relationships. The workings of T3HOST are described with...

Abstract

The numbers of B. microplus were counted on cattle with different Bos indicus (zebu) content in central and southern Queensland, from November 1977 to May 1982. Concurrently, measurements were made of the survival rates of parasitic stages of the tick and of the success of free-living stages in...

Abstract

Larvae of Boophilus microplus were released onto pasture in south-eastern and central Queensland and their survival was measured using destructive sampling. In summer 50% of the larvae survived for 2 weeks and 10% survived for 4 weeks. Comparable values for winter were 3-4 and 6-11 weeks...

Abstract

Information from modelling and empirical studies on Boophilus microplus (Can.) in Australia was earlier used to produce guidelines to analyse field problems. The studies described in this paper focus on the use of research information to make practical recommendations. Management options are based...

Abstract

The effect of Boophilus microplus on steers was investigated using three levels of infestation during summer 1980, autumn-winter 1980 and summer 1981. Mean losses in liveweight per engorged female tick during each of the three periods were 0.72, 0.47 and 1.52 g per tick respectively. The 1980...

Abstract

The host resistance of Bos taurus (British) and B. indicus X B. taurus (Zebu X British) steers and heifers to cattle tick Boophilus microplus was measured monthly for 2.5 years in south-eastern Queensland. The cattle either grazed native pasture, with or without a supplement of lucerne pellets, or...
