Of 20 blood samples from nilgais from Me ′xico, five were polymerase chain reaction-positive for Babesia bigemina and one for Babesia bovis. Positive samples had the expected 170 (B. bigemina) and 291 (B. bovis) base pairs and were identical to Gen-Bank B. bigemina accession S45366 and B. bovis M38218. 
Tick-borne Diseases in Syntopic Populations of Fallow Deer (Dama dama) and Axis Deer (Axis axis) in Northern Mexico
TLDR
Amplicons had the expected 170 and 291 base pairs and were identical to B. bigemina and B. bovis (M38218), respectively.
Babesiosis and Theileriosis in North America
Babesia and Theileria are apicomplexan parasites that cause established and emerging diseases in humans, domestic and wild animals. These protozoans are transmitted by Ixodid ticks causing babesiosis
Biosurveillance and Research Needs Involving Area-Wide Systematic Active Sampling to Enhance Integrated Cattle Fever Tick (Ixodida: Ixodidae) Eradication
TLDR
It is suggested that area-wide, systematic, active sampling and supportive research, involving the Permanent Qu quarantine Zone, Temporary Quarantine Zone, most of the coastal plain, and other parts of Texas outside of the quarantine zones, are needed to bridge the knowledge gap on the full extent of recent incursions.
Status Update on the Threat of Babesiosis Returning to the United States
Babesiosis is a hemolytic disease caused by protozoan parasites in the genus Babesia, transmitted through the saliva of infected ticks. The most economically important species, Babesia bigemina and
Enhanced biosurveillance of high-consequence invasive pests: southern cattle fever ticks, Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus, on livestock and wildlife
TLDR
The utility of enhanced biosurveillance using simulation tools to mitigate risk and enhance operations of area-wide tick management programmes like the CFTEP through integrated tactics for SCFT suppression is documented.
Prevalence of babesiosis in Sanga cattle in the Ohangwena region of Namibia
Three hundred and ninety two (n = 392) blood samples from randomly selected cattle were subjected to the indirect fluorescent antibody (IFA) test to test for antibodies against Babesia spp. The
Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus (Ixodida: Ixodidae) Larvae Collected From Vegetation in the Coastal Wildlife Corridor of Southern Texas and Research Solutions for Integrated Eradication
TLDR
Current scientific research on technologies that could be used for area-wide management of fever tick larvae in south Texas and how this could be applied to integrated eradication efforts are discussed are discussed.
Implication of Nilgai Antelope (Artiodactyla: Bovidae) in Reinfestations of Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus (Acari: Ixodidae) in South Texas: A Review and Update.
TLDR
Historical cattle fever tick infestation data, host source data, and geographical data support the continued role of O. virginianus in maintaining reinfestations of R. (B.) microplus and R.(B.) annulatus in South Texas as well as the increasing role of nilgai antelope in cattle Fever tick maintenance and dispersal.

Immunologic and Molecular Identification of Babesia bovis and Babesia bigemina in Free-Ranging White-Tailed Deer in Northern Mexico
TLDR
This is the first report of the presence of B. bovis and B. bigemina in white-tailed deer in the states of Nuevo Leon and Tamaulipas, Mexico and underscores the importance of cervids as possible reservoirs for bovine babesiosis.
White-Tailed Deer as Hosts of Cattle Fever-Ticks*
TLDR
It was concluded that white-tailed deer constitute a host species for B. microplus and must be considered in future fever tick eradication endeavors and it was suggested that, through routine dipping of cattle, fever ticks may be eradicated from an area where cattle and deer cohabit the same premises.
Detection of Babesia bigemina-infected carriers by polymerase chain reaction amplification
TLDR
The PCR-DNA probe assay was shown to be sensitive in detecting latently infected cattle and to provide valuable tools for performing large-scale epidemiological studies.
