Abstract

The higher the number of ticks located on one host, the smaller will be the size of the adults collected. The number of eggs laid will be reduced, with a consequential affect on the spreading of the virus. On a rabbit, 5 larvae were placed at one site and 15 at another: the average length of the adults collected was respectively, 3.03 mm and 2.97 mm. On another rabbit the length of the adults obtained from 5 larvae at one site was 2.80 mm, and 2.47 mm for 200 larvae from the other.
