small mammals as hosts of immature ixodid ticks.two hundred and twenty-five small mammals belonging to 16 species were examined for ticks in free state, mpumalanga and limpopo provinces, south africa, and 18 ixodid tick species, of which two could only be identified to genus level, were recovered. scrub hares, lepus saxatilis, and cape hares, lepus capensis, harboured the largest number of tick species. in free state province namaqua rock mice, aethomys namaquensis, and four-striped grass mice, rhabdomys pumilio, were good hosts of the immatu ...200516300195
ticks on crested francolins, francolinus sephaena, and on the vegetation on a farm in limpopo province, south africa.ticks were collected at approximately bi-monthly intervals between june 1996 and june 1997 from crested francolins, francolinus sephaena, and from the vegetation on a mixed cattle and wildlife farm in limpopo province, south africa. the birds were infested with the immature stages of 13 tick species, of which amblyomma hebraeum, amblyomma marmoreum and hyalomma marginatum rufipes were the most numerous and prevalent. ten ixodid tick species were collected from the vegetation, of which the immatu ...200516562738
the impact of 2 dipping systems on endemic stability to bovine babesiosis and anaplasmosis in cattle in 4 communally grazed areas in limpopo province, south africa.a 12-month study was conducted in 4 communal grazing areas in the bushbuckridge region, limpopo province, south africa. the main objective was to investigate the impact of reduced acaricide application on endemic stability to bovine babesiosis (babesia bigemina and babesia bovis) and anaplasmosis (anaplasma marginale) in the local cattle population. to this end 60 cattle in each communal grazing area were bled at the beginning and the conclusion of the experimental period and their sera were ass ...200516642719
ticks (acari: ixodidae) of small antelopes: steenbok, raphicerus campestris and suni, neotragus moschatus.during surveys on the tick burdens of various wildlife species in south africa, nine small antelopes became available for study. six of these were steenbok, raphicerus campestris and three sunis, neotragus moschatus, and their tick burdens are recorded here. the steenbok were examined in three nature reserves and harboured nine tick species. the sunis were examined in a fourth reserve and were infested with eight species. the steenbok and sunis were generally infested with the immature stages of ...200617058446
seroprevalence of babesia bovis and babesia bigemina in cattle in the soutpansberg region, limpopo province, south africa, associated with changes in vector-tick populations.a survey was conducted at 30 communal dip tanks and on 5 commercial farms in limpopo province, south africa, during 1999 and 2000 to determine the seroprevalence of antibodies to babesia bovis and babesia bigemina. cattle seropositive for b. bovis were found in 97% of the herds on communal land; the overall seroprevalence changed little between 1999 (63.3%) and 2000 (62.4%). all herds surveyed were infected with b. bigemina, and overall seroprevalence decreased significantly from 56.1% in 1999 t ...200617120620
a survey of free-living ixodid ticks on a commercial game farm in the thabazimbi district, limpopo province, south africa.free-living stages of ticks on a commercial game farm in the thabazimbi district, limpopo province, south africa, were collected by drag-sampling with flannel strips during the period september 2003 to august 2004. a total of 5 tick species was collected from 4 sites. boophilus decoloratus was the most abundant species, followed by amblyomma hebraeum. seasonal abundance of the ticks was quantified and an optimum time to implement control measures against the ticks is proposed.200617137055
