Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) annulatus

The eyes are difficult to see and festoons are absent. Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford. Several studies have characterised the tick-pathogen interface at the molecular level.

The tick was introduced into Mexico, from where it spread into much of the southern USA before it was virtually eradicated together with B. Functional analyses were conducted on selected genes by RNA interference in both R.

Quarantine is the major method of controlling ticks. It shows a cosmopolitan distribution in tropical and subtropical regions of the world.


Questing larvae are known to cover the entire bodies of their hosts during periods of heavy infestations, but seem to prefer the usual attachment locations: Boophilus ticks are parasites of ungulates and have a compressed life cycle with all stages parasitic on the same host one-host tickand are among the most important pests and disease vectors affecting livestock.

This page was last modified Originally established throughout 14 southern and southeastern states including Texas, Oklahoma, and parts of southern California, the cattle tick is currently found only in a few counties bordering the Rio Grande River in south Texas due to state and federal tick eradication programs first established in However, to our knowledge this is the first report of functional genomics studies in R.

In particular, Babesia bovis and Babesia bigemina are transmitted by cattle ticks, Rhipicephalus Boophilus annulatus and Rhipicephalus microplus, which are considered the most important boophulus ectoparasites with major economic boopgilus on cattle production.

A permanent quarantine zone extends from Brownsville west and northward to Del Rio, and is monitored by government livestock inspectors in an attempt to prevent livestock and wildlife from re-infesting the US and increasing the risk of bovine babesiosis.
