Predation of cattle fever ticks by hispid cotton rats in south Texas


Predation of cattle fever ticks by hispid cotton rats in south Texas



Journal of Parasitology 73(6): 1272-1273



ISSN/ISBN: 0022-3395

PMID: 3325626

DOI: 10.2307/3282327

Predation of engorged females of Boophilus annulatus by the hispid cotton rat (Sigmodon hispidus) was studied in the laboratory after field observations in Texas confirmed that S. hispidus will prey on ticks when other food becomes scarce.
