Observations on the efficacy of ivermectin in the control of cattle ticks in Zambia

Observations on the efficacy of ivermectin in the control of cattle ticks in Zambia

Veterinary Record 117(21): 551-554

The efficacy of multiple s/c injections (200 micro g/kg) of ivermectin in the control of naturally occurring tick infestations on traditionally managed Tonga-11a (Sanga type) calves and yearlings was assessed in two field trials. In the first trial Boophilus decoloratus infestations were decreased following treatments at monthly intervals.
