The production of cuticle wax by engorged females of the cattle tick, Boophilus microplus (Canestrini)


The production of cuticle wax by engorged females of the cattle tick, Boophilus microplus (Canestrini)



Journal of Experimental Biology 50(3): 705-709



ISSN/ISBN: 0022-0949

PMID: 5793885

The following is based largely on the author's summary. The weight of cuticle wax produced by engorged females of Boophilus microplus (Can.) in the laboratory in Australia at 30 degrees C and the loss of body weight during egg production were measured at intervals between dropping from the host and completion of egg laying. Body weight fell by 71% between 6 and 222 hr. after dropping; the rate of loss was highest during early egg production and reached a peak on the fourth day.
