Breeder’s knowledge on ticks and tick-borne diseases and management strategies in Menoua division (Western region of Cameroon)
This study indicated that, despite the good knowledge of breeders on ticks, their main challenge lies in treatment failures within the framework of vector control, and it is therefore urgent that the competent services deploy in the farms to support them in the management of ticks and TBDs.
Cattle trading favors the introduction and establishment of the invasive tick Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus in Menoua Division, West Region of Cameroon
Tick infestation is a major public health and veterinary issue that limits animal productivity throughout the world and animals were 6 times more infested in the dry than in the rainy season with a relative risk of infestation greater in November, January and March compared to other months.
A countrywide molecular survey leads to a seminal identification of the invasive cattle tick Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus in Cameroon, a decade after it was reported in Cote d’Ivoire
It is demonstrated for the first time the presence of R. microplus in Cameroon, the genetic polymorphism of the tick and population structure of isolates from different regions of the country to provide data that underpin the design of future vector control programs.
Amblyomma Variegatum Hyalomma Truncatum and Hyalomma Impeltatum Anthropophilic Ticks Introduced to Gabon by the Fulbe Zebus from Cameroon: their Predilection Sites and Ability to Live in Gabon
The using of an acaricide to treat cattle before acrossing the border remains the best way to prevent the introduction of ticks to Gabon, and Amblyomma variegatum was the only tick specie that can support Gabonese climatic conditions.


This research focuses on necessity of integrated tick management Programme and awareness at national level where age and sex of host play non-significant role in prevalence of tick infestation, while breed of the host and health status are important parameters found to be significantly affecting tick prevalence.
Identification and Infestation ofTicks on Cattle in the Peri-UrbanArea of Ngaoundere, Cameroon
The results of this study revealed that the services of a veterinarian is required in orderto establish a real strategy against ticks and use of acaricides to reduce the tick population hence improving cattle physiological parameters as well as productivity.
Cattle ticks in Cameroon: is Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus absent in Cameroon and the Central African region?
Cattle tick infestation in Cameroon remains an important cause for concern and farmers need assistance in the use and management of acaricides in order to increase their efficiency and reduce the development of resistance.
Infestation and Identification of Ixodid Tick in Cattle: The Case of Arbegona District, Southern Ethiopia
There was high burden and prevalence of ticks that still play major roles in reducing productivity and cause health problems of cattle in the area which call for urgent attention.
Preliminary study of ectoparasites of horses in the western highlands of Cameroon
To evaluate the prevalence of infestation of ectoparasites of horses, a total of 894 horses, aged 1–7 years old were examined andBoophilus decoloratus had the highest prevalence per locality, followed by A. hebraeum and H. rufipes, which had a higher prevalence in adult male horses.
Tick control in the context of ECF immunization.
Although many factors have made chemical control of ECF and other tickborne diseases (TBD) less reliable, one of the most impor- tant has been the great increase in cost of acaricides. Whereas
Genome wide scan for quantitative trait loci affecting tick resistance in cattle (Bos taurus × Bos indicus)
The experimental F2 population derived from Gyr × Holstein cross successfully allowed the identification of six highly significant QTL associated with tick resistance in cattle, including one related with the bovine histocompatibility complex.
Interactions between ticks and their hosts.

Tick populations on hosts are limited by varied mechanisms expressed through natural host-parasite relationships and study of these natural interactions between ticks and their hosts provides guidelines for managing interactions with domestic livestock.
Facteurs environnementaux de variations de l'abondance des tiques Ixodes ricinus dans des zones d'étude modèles en Auvergne
La connaissance et le controle des risques lies a la vectorisation d'agents pathogenes par les tiques, en particulier par Ixodes ricinus, font partie des priorites de sante publique en France. Les
