Control of ixodid ticks by chemicals, I. Bioassay tests against Boophilus microplus (Can.)

Control of ixodid ticks by chemicals, I. Bioassay tests against Boophilus microplus (Can.)

Indian Journal of Animal Health 26(1): 27-30

To test the efficacy of various acaricides, one-day-old engorged females of Boophilus microplus were dipped for 50 seconds into water-based emulsions of Hexadrin Hexamition Zolone Metacide Malamar or Hexavin at concentrations in the range of 0.0039 to 1.0%. The LD50 for each product was 0.00536, 0.03631, 0.07679, 0.08433, 0.1422 and 0.478%, respectivly, at 30 degrees C and 80% RH. The effect of each product on egg production and hatch-rate was also studied.
