The effects of nutritional status of rabbits and sheep on their resistance to the ticks Rhipicephalus evertsi evertsi and R. appendiculatus

, : The effects of nutritional status of rabbits and sheep on their resistance to the ticks Rhipicephalus evertsi evertsi and R. appendiculatus. Experimental & Applied Acarology 15(3): 171-179

Rabbits and sheep were exposed to low- and high-protein diets and subsequently infested 3 times with adults of R. appendiculatus and R. evertsi evertsi. The mean weight of R. e. evertsi females which dropped from rabbits maintained on a high-protein diet decreased from 515.0+or-24.9 mg (naive) to 381.5+or-25.0 (second infestation) to 340.3+or-23.3 mg (third infestation), while the weight of ticks fed on animals which were exposed to a low-protein diet did not change significantly (2.7%).
