Important Cattle Ticks and Tick Born Haemoparasitic Disease in Ethiopia : A Review

  title={Important Cattle Ticks and Tick Born Haemoparasitic Disease in Ethiopia : A Review},
  author={Nejash Abdela},
Ethiopia has the largest livestock population in Africa, but the contribution for the economic aspect of the country is still lowest and disease can be considered as major constrain. Ticks are the most important ectoparasites of livestock in tropical and sub-tropical areas. Ethiopia is not exceptional and ticks are responsible for severe economic losses both through the direct effects of blood sucking and indirectly as vectors of pathogens and toxins. Feeding by large numbers of ticks causes…

Seroprevalence of CBPP is posing a major threat to cattle production in many parts of the country, thereby causing considerable economic losses through morbidity and mortality and great attention should be given both at production areas and the quarantine stations as its occurrence may affect the export earnings of the nation.
Effect of the Essential Oil of Clausena anisata (Rutaceae) and Palm Kernel Vegetable Oil on Engorged Females of Three Species of Ixodidae Cattle Ticks
Evaluating the effects of the essential oil of Clausena anisata and of palm kernel vegetable oil compared to a reference chemical acaricide, flumethrin, on the biological parameters of the engorged females of three major tick species in the Maritime Region of Togo found the two oils tested can be an alternative control of the studied ticks after additional studies.
Evaluation of the in vitro acaricidal properties of the latex and major compounds isolated from the leaves of aloe yavellana (reynolds) against amblyomma variegatum (ixodidae ticks)
The latex was found to be more effective in killing larvae ticks than the individual isolated compounds and could have the potential to be used as bioacaricides against ticks and tick born disease (TBDs).
