The ecological basis of parasite control: ticks and flies

, : The ecological basis of parasite control: ticks and flies. Veterinary Parasitology 11(1): 99-106

Tick and fly control programmes have undergone radical review in recent years. Insecticidal control measures are now often seen as a means of reducing target populations to a level sufficiently low for final eradication by biological or ecological techniques, the sterile male method (SIRM) being particularly favoured. As a preliminary, the new range of insecticidal application techniques includes insecticidal tags, bands, blouses, implants and pheromone baits. The final eradication programme could then involve the use of sterile flies or sterile hybrid ticks, for example. Immunization of cattle against ticks, the use of tick-resistant crossbreeds of cattle, tick-repellent grasses and dung burying beetles are among the additional techniques now being actively investigated.
