The effect of density on the survival of Boophilus microplus on previously unexposed cattle



The effect of density on the survival of Boophilus microplus on previously unexposed cattle



International Journal for Parasitology 8(4): 321-324



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 resistance to ticks.
