Control of ticks and tick-borne diseases in Burundi



Control of ticks and tick-borne diseases in Burundi



ACIAR Proceedings Series, Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (17): 16-17



An account is given on studies of the ecology, vectorial capacity and control of Rhipicephalus appendiculatus, the main vector of Theileria parva in cattle in Burundi. Of sera collected in one study, 63% was positive to antigens of T. parva, with the incidence of this disease in cattle ranging from 7.3 to 96.5%. T. mutans, T. velifera and T. orientalis also occurred in Burundi, as did Anaplasma marginale, Babesia bigemina and Cowdria ruminantium.
