Ixodid ticks of Maharashtra State, India
1995 - Volume: 36 Issue: 4 pages: 309-313
A survey of ixodid ticks in Maharashtra, India, was undertaken during 1976 to 1978. The tick collection included specimens from domestic animals, birds, small mammals and from cattle-sheds. A total of 21 species of ixodid species was collected, which raises the total number of species known in Maharashtra to 28. A definite pattern in the distribution of certain species has emerged from these studies. Most of the species recorded showed some degree of host and site preferences. Mass breeding of Hyalomma anatolicum anatolicum and Haemaphysalis bispinosa was observed inside the cattle sheds.
