Evaluation of acaricide impregnated plastic collars for control of lone star ticks amblyomma americanum l. acari ixodidae on domestic dogs in oklahoma usa


, : Evaluation of acaricide impregnated plastic collars for control of lone star ticks amblyomma americanum l. acari ixodidae on domestic dogs in oklahoma usa. Preventive Veterinary Medicine 5(1): 63-68

Acaricide-impregnated plastic collars provided up to 22 weeks of control (> 70% mortality) of lone star ticks, Amblyomma americanum (L.), which infested beagle dogs in eastern Oklahoma [USA]. Of the eight commercially available collars tested in 1984 and 1985 the effectiveness of the residues in killing > 50% of the attached ticks was lost from < 2 weeks (carbaryl) to 22-24 weeks (chlorfenvinphos). Most of the ticks were killed within 24 h of attaching to the test animals, but an additional significant (> 0.05% probability) percentage (20.0%) were killed within the next 24 h. The significance of using the collars for protection of dogs from attack by ticks is discussed.
