Current control measures for the cattle tick, Boophilus microplus, in Queensland

Current control measures for the cattle tick, Boophilus microplus, in Queensland

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: 39-43

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 widespread resistance that has developed to organophosphorus acaricides, synthetic pyrethroids are being assessed for use in association with the former.
