Culture of Rhipicephalus appendiculatus tick on laboratory animals



Culture of Rhipicephalus appendiculatus tick on laboratory animals



Pakistan Veterinary Journal 8(1): 44-46



A technique for rearing individuals of R. appendiculatus (at 28 degrees C and 85% RH) is described, using 3- to 8-month-old New Zealand white rabbits, guineapigs and mice. The rabbits were immobilized in a wooden box and fitted with ear bags (to contain the ticks) made of cotton cloth (13x16 cm), which were attached with wood-working glue and 2.5 cm wide zinc oxide adhesive tape.
