Contribution to the study of the tick vectors (Acarina: Ixodina) of Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever virus (CCHF) in Senegal. 3. - Rhipicephalus guilhoni Morel et Vassilliades, variations in size as a function of parasitic load. Epidemiological consequences


, : Contribution to the study of the tick vectors (Acarina: Ixodina) of Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever virus (CCHF) in Senegal. 3. - Rhipicephalus guilhoni Morel et Vassilliades, variations in size as a function of parasitic load. Epidemiological consequences. Acarologia 38(1): 39-41

The higher the number of ticks on one host, the smaller will be the size of the adults collected. The number of eggs laid will be reduced, with a consequential affect on the dissemination of virus. On a rabbit, 5 larvae of R. guilhoni were placed at one site and 15 at another; the average length of the adults (a measure of their size) that developed was, respectively, 3.03 mm and 2.97 mm.
