Resistance to toxaphene by the Bont tick, Amblyomma hebraeum (Koch)



Resistance to toxaphene by the Bont tick, Amblyomma hebraeum (Koch)



Journal of the South African Veterinary Association 48(1): 59-65



A series of in vitro and in vivo trials confirmed that resistance by Amblyomma hebraeum Koch to toxaphene occurred in the Cape, Natal and Transvaal Provinces of South Africa and in Swaziland and Transkei. Resistance was present in 80 of 97 field strains examined. Resistance to gamma -BHC (lindane) and DDT was present in the one field strain tested.
