babesia infection in rodents trapped in riyadh region, saudi arabia, with a general discussion.species of babesia are intraerythrocytic protozoal parasites of many species of mammalians in all parts of the world where the tick-vectors are found. babesiosis or piroplasmosis causes considerable damage to the livestock and other animals. human babesiosis has been documented in many countries. consequently, babesiosis is a zoonotic disease of medical, veterinary and economic importance. in this study, a total of 310 rodents of different species were trapped from different areas in riyadh regi ...19948169440
studies on the interrelation between rodents and their ectoparasitic acarines in riyadh region, saudi arabia.the ectoparasitic acarines of commensal and wild rodents collected from various areas in riyadh region were four species of mites (laelaps nutalli, ornythonyssus bacoti, cheyletus eruditus and articholaelaps glasgowi), and two species of ticks. (immature stages) rhipicephalus spp. and hyalomma spp. in urban areas the highest infestation rate by mites was 49.9% on rattus rattus followed by 18.5% on rattus norvegicus. the highest rat-mite index was 2.3 on r. rattus followed by 1.3 on r. norvegicus ...19938308342
