Three hundred and fifteen engorged female Boophilus microplus ticks (weight 210-250 mg) naturally infected with Babesia sp., in the Mexican tropics were monitored for egg production. Haemolymph samples were taken from each tick on the 5th day to the 16th day after collection to detect and estimate the infection with Babesia sp. kinetes. All ticks were held in darkness at 27+/-1.5 degrees C and 85-86% relative humidity. The infection rate of Babesia sp. was 20.3% (64/315). Fifteen ticks were… CONTINUE READING
