ticks population epidemiology Senegal


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.
