Tick and Biting Fly Research
Project Number: 6205-32000-034-23
Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Jan 01, 2012
End Date: Dec 31, 2013
To evaluate the efficacy of a novel chemistry of pour-on acaricide for controlling cattle fever ticks, Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus and R. (B.) annulatus, and lone star ticks, Amblyomma americanum.
Conduct bioassays, specifically larval packet tests, to evaluate the potential of the novel pour-on acaricide formulation for controlling ticks on cattle and white-tailed deer.
