population dynamics Ixodina Rodentia CCHF virus


From 1987 to 1989, ticks were collected from rodents, mostly Arvicanthis niloticus and Mastomys erythroleucus, and from ungulates. Hyalomma truncatum and Rhipicephalus guilhoni immature ticks infested rodents at the end of the rainy season, with a larval peak in October and a nymphal infestation peak in December. Dynamics of the tick populations of both species were compared. H. truncatum and R. guilhoni presented a similar pattern, with one cycle per year. Their role in the maintenance of the CCHF virus is discussed.
