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: 3094-32000-034-23
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.
