Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus andHyalomma anatolicum are the most commonly foundcattle tick species and cause significant economic lossesto dairy and leather industries by adversely affecting themilk production and quality of hides. Tick control strategyinvolves mainly the use of synthetic acaricides which resultsin the development of acaricide resistance. Deltamethrinacts on the parasites by contact and has strong lipophilicaction thus penetrates the cuticle nerve ganglion and block the motor activity. The presentstudy was aimed at the determination of in vitro efficacyof Deltamethrin against H. anatolicum ticks collected fromhealthy cattle of college farm and nearby dairy farms.
