Tick populations on zebu cattle in five ecological zones in Burundi



Tick populations on zebu cattle in five ecological zones in Burundi



ACIAR Proceedings Series, Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (17): 66



Populations of Rhipicephalus appendiculatus, Boophilus decoloratus, Amblyomma variegatum and R. evertsi evertsi were studied on Ankole cattle at monthly intervals over 2-3 years in 4 ecological zones of Burundi (830-1671 m altitude). Observations were made simultaneously on the development and survival of R. appendiculatus in pastures at each location. Ticks were also counted on cattle in a 5th, high altitude zone (2286 m altitude) for one year.
