Research Project: Evaluation of Novel Acaricide for Controlling Cattle Fever Ticks, Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) Microplus and R(b) Annulatus, and Lone Star Tick

Location: Tick and Biting Fly Research

Project Number: 6205-32000-034-23
Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jan 01, 2012
End Date: Dec 31, 2013

Objective:
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.

Approach:
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.
