Abstract

Tick and tick-borne diseases such as theileriosis, babesiosis, and Anaplasmosis pose a constant threat to cattle health. Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus and Hyalomma anatolicum are the most commonly found cattle tick species and cause significant economic losses to dairy and leather industries by adversely affecting the milk production and quality of hides. Tick control strategy involves mainly the use of synthetic acaricides which results in the development of acaricide resistance. Deltamethrin acts on the parasites by contact and has strong lipophilic action thus penetrates the cuticle and bind the peripheral nerve ganglion and block the motor activity. The present study was aimed at the determination of in vitro efficacy of Deltamethrin against H. anatolicum ticks collected from healthy cattle of college farm and nearby dairy farms.
