Ticks and tick-borne diseases in Zimbabwe



Ticks and tick-borne diseases in Zimbabwe



ACIAR Proceedings Series, Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (17): 29



Rhipicephalus appendiculatus is the most important tick species infesting cattle in the highveld of Zimbabwe, and Amblyomma hebraeum the dominant species of the lowveld. Theileriosis caused by Theileria parva bovis is widespread in the highveld and heartwater fever caused by Cowdria ruminantium is the dominant tick-borne disease of the lowveld. Babesia bigemina and Anaplasma marginale occur throughout the country.
