Species quantification and seasonal abundance of ticks (Acarina: Ixodidae) in the eastern province of Zambia: ticks from cattle



Species quantification and seasonal abundance of ticks (Acarina: Ixodidae) in the eastern province of Zambia: ticks from cattle



Tropical Pest Management 31(3): 204-207, 249, 252-253



Fifteen species of ticks in 6 genera are reported infesting cattle in Zambia in 1976-79. Although some species were fairly prevalent throughout the year, the majority had peaks of abundance in the wet season. The most abundant species was Rhipicephalus punctatus, followed by R. appendiculatus , Amblyomma variegatum and Boophilus microplus.
