In this study, tick burdens on camels (Camelus dromedarius) were determined in the vicinity of the St. Catherine monastery, Sinai, Egypt. In total 2,545 ticks (1,491 adults and 1,054 nymphs) were collected and identified. Mean tick burdens were relatively heavy and the range in number of ticks per camel was very broad (6–173). Hyalomma dromedarii was the predominant tick species and accounted for 95.6% of the adult ticks. Other ticks found were H. marginatum subspp. and H. anatolicum excavatum… Expand
Ticks (Acari: Ixodidae) infesting camels (Camelus dromedarius) in Northern Sudan.
TLDR
Female camels harboured more ticks than males while higher infestations were recorded on camels with a grey coat colour compared to those with a brown coat colour. Expand
Population dynamics of ticks infesting the one-humped camel (Camelus dromedarius) in central Tunisia.
TLDR
Different abiotic factors, namely monthly mean minimum and monthly mean maximum temperatures and the number of sunny days were positively correlated with overall monthly tick burdens which were in turn negatively correlated with the monthly mean relative humidity. Expand
Phenology and phylogeny of Hyalomma spp. ticks infesting one-humped camels (Camelus dromedarius) in the Tunisian Saharan bioclimatic zone
TLDR
The infestation prevalence of camels varied significantly according to the region where sampling took place, but no correlations were found with abiotic factors, and a single H. dromedarii seemed to be a natural hybrid with H. rufipes. Expand
Frequency of hard-ticks and the influence of age and sex of camel on ticks infestation rates in one-humped camel (Camelus dromedarius) population in the northeast of Iran
TLDR
This survey was carried out in eleven towns and cities in the three provinces of Northeast Iran from May 2012 to January 2013 to identify the distribution of different tick species infesting camels and to evaluate the influence of sex and age of camels on the infestation rate of ticks. Expand
One-Humped Camels (Camelus dromedaries) Hard Ticks Infestation in Qeshm Island, Iran
TLDR
The provision of tick control programs in the Qeshm Island would seem a prerequisite for improving camel meat and milk production. Expand
Hard ticks (Acari: Ixodidae) infesting domestic animals in Egypt: diagnostic characters and a taxonomic key to the collected species
TLDR
This study provided detailed descriptions of the genital apertures of five Hyalomma species and provided additional details on local geographic distributions, hosts, endemicity status, and disease relationships of the eleven tick species. Expand
Population Dynamics of Hyalomma dromedarii on Camels in the United Arab Emirates
TLDR
This study reveals that H. dromedarii has a very high prevalence and continuous presence on camels in the UAE regardless of the weather fluctuations and acaricide applications and showed the need for an effective control strategy. Expand
Molecular Detection of Pathogens in Ticks Infesting Camels in MatrouhGovernorate, Egypt
TLDR
It is concluded that several pathogens are present in ticks in this area, phylogeny is required in order to validate the PCR results, and special attention should be given to tick control programs. Expand
Detection of Theileria annulata by the PCR in ticks (Acari: Ixodidae) collected from cattle in Mauritania
TLDR
The detection of Theileria annulata in infected Hyalomma ticks by the PCR using primers derived from the gene encoding the 30 kDa major merozoite surface antigen (Tams1–1) is reported, confirming that H. dromedarii is the main vector of T. annulATA in Mauritania and that the PCR is a useful method of determining the infection rates in ticks collected from cattle carrying low levels of the parasite. Expand
Photosensitizers in the fight against ticks: safranin as a novel photodynamic fluorescent acaricide to control the camel tick Hyalomma dromedarii (Ixodidae)
TLDR
Compared to tetramethrin, safranin is highly effective if compared to TM, allowing use to candidate it for the development of novel and safer acaricides. Expand

4. Common ectoparasites of the camel and their control
TLDR
The major ectoparasites affecting both dromedary (Arabian) and Bactrian camels are considered together with their involvement in disease transmission and it is hoped that the review will assist veterinary surgeons and others concerned with the health and welfare of camels in preventing, controlling and treating this important group of parasites.

Infection rates of Theileria annulata in the salivary glands of the tick Hyalomma marginatum rufipes.
TLDR
Theileria annulata was experimentally transmitted to cattle on two occasions by the two-host tick Hyalomma marginatum rufipes, but since the immature stages of this species normally feed on birds, this tick is unlikely to be an important vector in the field. Expand
Myiasis caused by Wohlfahrtia magnifica (Schiner, 1862) in the Arabian camel (Camelus dromedarius) in the Peninsula of Sinai.
TLDR
Treatment with diazinon and synergized pyrethrum in pine oil proved effective in treating massive myiasis caused by Wohlfahrtia magnifica in camels in the Southern Mountainous zone of the Peninsula of Sinai. Expand
3. Protozoal diseases of camels
TLDR
The most important protozoan parasite of the camel is Trypanosoma evansi, which causes severe disease throughout Africa and Asia, and in the absence of effective alternative drugs it remains a potential hazard to successful disease control. Expand
Efficacy of ivermectin against gastrointestinal nematodes in dromedary camels.
TLDR
The anthelmintic activity of ivermectin when administered orally and subcutaneously at a dosage of 0.2 mg/kg of body weight was evaluated in 4 trials involving 20 dromedary camels, and egg counts were reduced with oral administration and increased following subcutaneous treatment. Expand
