Controlled-release reservoir systems for the delivery of insect steroid analogues (ecdysteroids) have been developed and evaluated against ticks. Effects on the tick Hyalomma dromedarii of ecdysteroids released into the blood of host rabbits with implants were determined. The most important effects were (1) mortality of larvae, (2) reduced mean weight of surviving engorged nymphs, (3) accelerated molting of fed nymphs, and (4) increased pheromone production by females and initiation of… CONTINUE READING
