Two llamas (Lama glama) were infested with approximately 20,000 Boophilus microplus larvae each and maintained under controlled conditions to collect the detached adult ticks. A total of 72 engorged and semi-engorged females were recovered with a mean weight of 163.0 +/- 70.6 mg. Sixty-three (87.5%) of these ticks oviposited and ...

The host relationships for most species of the genus Amblyomma are poorly known in Brazil. The ability of A. pseudoconcolor and A. cooperi to successfully feed on horses was investigated during ongoing research on the life cycle of these two species, which are primarily associated with wildlife. Results of these ...

Female Ixodes ricinus (ticks) are able to consume several times as much as their own weight in food. The body volume increases without the animal moulting. Special structural and material characteristics of the cuticular exoskeleton render this phenomenon possible. Only the alloscutum, which has a very pronounced lamellar structure, extends. ...
