Differences in paralyzing ability and sites of attachment to cattle of Rocky Mountain wood ticks (Acari: Ixodidae) from three regions of western Canada



Differences in paralyzing ability and sites of attachment to cattle of Rocky Mountain wood ticks (Acari: Ixodidae) from three regions of western Canada



Journal of Medical Entomology 22(1): 28-31



Of 10 lambs each infested with 10 females of Dermacentor andersoni from British Columbia, Canada, 8 became paralysed or ataxic within 10 days, whereas none of 2 lots of lambs infested with ticks from 2 localities in Alberta became ataxic; contingency tests indicated that these differences were highly significant.
