Duration of antibodies against 24 kd protein of Rhipicephalus sanguineus extract in dogs infested with the adult ticks. (1/312)

A 24 kd protein from Rhipicephalus sanguineus (Rs24p) which was common to larvae, nymphs, male and female whole body and salivary gland extract of males and female was detected specifically in the serum from dogs after repeated infestation with adult R. sanguineus. The duration of antibodies against Rs24p in dogs infested with adults was examined by Western blotting analysis. Anti-Rs24p antibody was detected in two of 4 dogs during the period of 40 days in the first infestation. In the second infestation, all dogs showed positive reaction against Rs24p, but the duration of the antibodies varied greatly among the animals.  (+info)

Molecular characterization of a Haemaphysalis longicornis tick salivary gland-associated 29-kilodalton protein and its effect as a vaccine against tick infestation in rabbits. (2/312)

The use of tick vaccines in mammalian hosts has been shown to be the most promising alternative tick control method to current use of acaricides, which suffers from a number of limitations. However, the success of this method is dependent on the identification, cloning, and in vitro expression of tick molecules involved in the mediation of key physiological roles with respect to the biological success of a tick as a vector and pest. We have sequenced and characterized a Haemaphysalis longicornis tick salivary gland-associated cDNA coding for a 29-kDa extracellular matrix-like protein. This protein is expressed in both unfed and fed immature and mature H. longicornis ticks. The predicted amino acid sequence of p29 shows high homology to sequences of some known extracellular matrix like-proteins with the structural conservation similar to all known collagen proteins. Immunization with the recombinant p29 conferred a significant protective immunity in rabbits, resulting in reduced engorgement weight for adult ticks and up to 40 and 56% mortality in larvae and nymphs that fed on the immunized rabbits. We speculate that this protein is associated with formation of tick cement, a chemical compound that enables the tick to remain attached to the host, and suggest a role for p29 as a candidate tick vaccine molecule for the control of ticks. We have discussed our findings with respect to the search of tick molecules for vaccine candidates.  (+info)

Successive tick infestations selectively promote a T-helper 2 cytokine profile in mice. (3/312)

Several studies have revealed that T lymphocytes and cytokines play a crucial role in determining the outcome of parasitic infections in terms of protective immunity. In this study we found that Rhipicephalus sanguineus tick saliva stimulates transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta), and reduces interleukin-12 (IL-12) secretion by cells from normal C3H/HeJ mice. Moreover, murine lymph node cells harvested 6 days after the fourth infestation with ticks presented an 82.4% decrease in their proliferative response to concanavalin A (Con A) compared with the response of control cells. In addition, lymph node cells cultured in the presence of Con A showed a T-helper 2-type (Th2-type) cytokine profile, represented by augmented IL-4 and IL-10 and TGF-beta. On the other hand, the IL-2, interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) and IL-12 synthesis was significantly inhibited. These results indicate that ticks may modulate the host's immune response through saliva injection. Considering that C3H/HeJ mice develop no protective immunity to R. sanguineus infestation, our results suggest that tick-induced Th2-type cytokines and a decreased proliferative response probably lead the host to a susceptible state to both tick and tick-transmitted pathogens.  (+info)

Longitudinal study of infection with Borrelia burgdorferi in a population of Peromyscus leucopus at a Lyme disease-enzootic site in Maryland. (4/312)

The maintenance of Borrelia burgdorferi in a population of Peromyscus leucopus was investigated from 202 mark and recapture mice and 61 mice that were removed from a site in Baltimore County, Maryland. Borrelia burgdorferi infection was detected by culture and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) of ear tissue, and exposure to the spirochete was quantified by serology. Overall prevalence of B. burgdorferi, as determined by culture and PCR of ear tissue at first capture, was 25% in the longitudinal sample and 42% in the cross-sectional sample. Significantly more juvenile mice were captured in the longitudinal sample (18%) than in the cross-sectional sample (0%). Among 36 captured juvenile mice, only one was infected with B. burgdorferi; this contributed to a significant trend for infection with B. burgdorferi with age. Recovery from infection with B. burgdorferi was not detected among 77 mice followed for an average of 160 days. The incidence rate of infection with B. burgdorferi was 10 times greater in mice captured during two periods of high risk of exposure to nymphal Ixodes scapularis ticks compared with a period of low risk. Maintenance of B. burgdorferi in this population was dependent on indirect transmission of the organism from infected ticks to susceptible mice and development of chronic infection with the spirochete, which had no measurable effect on the survival of infected mice.  (+info)

African swine fever virus replication in the midgut epithelium is required for infection of Ornithodoros ticks. (5/312)

Although the Malawi Lil20/1 (MAL) strain of African swine fever virus (ASFV) was isolated from Ornithodoros sp. ticks, our attempts to experimentally infect ticks by feeding them this strain failed. Ten different collections of Ornithodorus porcinus porcinus ticks and one collection of O. porcinus domesticus ticks were orally exposed to a high titer of MAL. At 3 weeks postinoculation (p.i.), <25% of the ticks contained detectable virus, with viral titers of <4 log(10) 50% hemadsorbing doses/ml. Viral titers declined to undetectability in >90% of the ticks by 5 weeks p.i. To further study the growth defect, O. porcinus porcinus ticks were orally exposed to MAL and assayed at regular intervals p.i. Whole-tick viral titers dramatically declined (>1,000-fold) between 2 and 6 days p.i., and by 18 days p.i., viral titers were below the detection limit. In contrast, viral titers of ticks orally exposed to a tick-competent ASFV isolate, Pretoriuskop/96/4/1 (Pr4), increased 10-fold by 10 days p.i. and 50-fold by 14 days p.i. Early viral gene expression, but not extensive late gene expression or viral DNA synthesis, was detected in the midguts of ticks orally exposed to MAL. Ultrastructural analysis demonstrated that progeny virus was rarely present in ticks orally exposed to MAL and, when present, was associated with extensive cytopathology of phagocytic midgut epithelial cells. To determine if viral replication was restricted only in the midgut epithelium, parenteral inoculations into the hemocoel were performed. With inoculation by this route, a persistent infection was established although a delay in generalization of MAL was detected and viral titers in most tissues were typically 10- to 1,000-fold lower than those of ticks injected with Pr4. MAL was detected in both the salivary secretion and coxal fluid following feeding but less frequently and at a lower titer compared to Pr4. Transovarial transmission of MAL was not detected after two gonotrophic cycles. Ultrastructural analysis demonstrated that, when injected, MAL replicated in a number of cell types but failed to replicate in midgut epithelial cells. In contrast, ticks injected with Pr4 had replicating virus in midgut epithelial cells. Together, these results indicate that MAL replication is restricted in midgut epithelial cells. This finding demonstrates the importance of viral replication in the midgut for successful ASFV infection of the arthropod host.  (+info)

Tick paralysis: 33 human cases in Washington State, 1946-1996. (6/312)

Tick paralysis is a preventable cause of illness and death that, when diagnosed promptly, requires simple, low-cost intervention (tick removal). We reviewed information on cases of tick paralysis that were reported to the Washington State Department of Health (Seattle) during 1946-1996. Thirty-three cases of tick paralysis were identified, including 2 in children who died. Most of the patients were female (76%), and most cases (82%) occurred in children aged <8 years. Nearly all cases with information on site of probable exposure indicated exposure east of the Cascade Mountains. Onset of illness occurred from March 14 to June 22. Of the 28 patients for whom information regarding hospitalization was available, 54% were hospitalized. Dermacentor andersoni was consistently identified when information on the tick species was reported. This large series of cases of tick paralysis demonstrates the predictable epidemiology of this disease. Improving health care provider awareness of tick paralysis could help limit morbidity and mortality due to this disease.  (+info)

Prevalence of Lyme disease Borrelia spp. in ticks from migratory birds on the Japanese mainland. (7/312)

Borrelia sp. prevalence in ticks on migratory birds was surveyed in central Japan. In autumn, a total of 1,733 birds representing 40 species were examined for ticks. A total of 361 ticks were obtained from 173 birds of 15 species, and these ticks were immature Haemaphysalis flava (94.4%), Haemaphysalis longicornis, Ixodes columnae, Ixodes persulcatus, Ixodes turdus, and an unidentified Ixodes species. Of these, 27 juveniles of H. flava on Turdus pallidus, Turdus cardis, or Emberiza spodocephala, 2 juveniles of I. persulcatus on T. pallidus, and 1 female H. flava molted from a T. pallidus-derived nymph were positive for the presence of Borrelia by Barbour-Stoenner-Kelly culture passages. In spring, a total of 16 ticks obtained from 102 birds of 21 species were negative for the spirochete. Isolates from 15 ticks were characterized by 5S-23S rRNA intergenic spacer restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis; all isolates were identified as Borrelia garinii with pattern B/B' based on the previous patterning. According to the intergenic spacer sequences, 2 of 15 isolates, strains Fi14f and Fi24f, were highly similar to B. garinii strains 935T of Korea and ChY13p of Inner Mongolia, China, respectively. These findings indicate that Lyme disease-causing B. garinii may have been introduced to Japan by migratory birds from northeastern China via Korea. Additionally, a case of transstadial transmission of B. garinii from nymph to adult H. flava suggests that the infected H. flava may transmit Borrelia to large animals.  (+info)

Acquisition of coinfection and simultaneous transmission of Borrelia burgdorferi and Ehrlichia phagocytophila by Ixodes scapularis ticks. (8/312)

The agents of Lyme disease (Borrelia burgdorferi) and human granulocytic ehrlichiosis (Ehrlichia phagocytophila) are both transmitted by the tick Ixodes scapularis. In nature, ticks are often infected with both agents simultaneously. We studied whether previous infection with either Borrelia or Ehrlichia in ticks would affect acquisition and transmission of a second pathogen. Ehrlichia-infected I. scapularis nymphs were fed upon Borrelia-infected mice, and Borrelia-infected I. scapularis nymphs were fed upon Ehrlichia-infected mice. The efficiency with which previously infected nymphal ticks acquired a second pathogen from infected hosts was compared to that of uninfected ticks. An average of 51% +/- 15% of ticks acquired Ehrlichia from infected mice regardless of their prior infection status with Borrelia. An average of 85% +/- 10% of ticks acquired Borrelia from infected mice regardless of their prior infection status with Ehrlichia. Also, we assessed the efficiency with which individual nymphs could transmit either agent alone, or both agents simultaneously, to individual susceptible hosts. An average of 76% +/- 9% of Borrelia-infected ticks and 84% +/- 10% of Ehrlichia-infected ticks transmitted these agents to mice regardless of the presence of the other pathogen. There was no evidence of interaction between the agents of Lyme disease and human granulocytic ehrlichiosis in I. scapularis ticks. The presence of either agent in the ticks did not affect acquisition of the other agent from an infected host. Transmission of the agents of Lyme disease and human granulocytic ehrlichiosis by individual ticks was equally efficient and independent. Dually infected ticks transmitted each pathogen to susceptible hosts as efficiently as ticks infected with only one pathogen.  (+info)

Innovative Ways to End a Tick Infestation When it comes to a tick infestation, all dogs are vulnerable. All breeds of dogs can be infested by ticks. When it comes of a tick infestation, the gender predisposition of the dog is immaterial. In some of the instances, the affected dog might not show the symptoms of a tick infestation. In some dogs, the signs of an infestation are likely to arise. When a dog has been infested by ticks, it is likely to manifest various symptoms. For instance, redness is witnessed in some of the dogs. Once a tick infestation happens, inflammation is likely to occur. The owner of the dog should be alarmed when the dog is always chewing. One of the main symptoms of a tick infestation in dogs is frequent scratching. Trauma is likely to happen when a dog has been infested with ticks for a long period of time. If the tick infestation is not addressed in time, the dog is likely to suffer from systemic illness. Indeed, many dogs are likely to experience hypersensitivity ...
BUDELI, M.A. et al. Genetic parameter estimates for tick resistance in Bonsmara cattle. S. Afr. j. anim. sci. [online]. 2009, vol.39, n.4, pp.321-327. ISSN 2221-4062.. The objectives of the study were to estimate genetic parameters for tick resistance and to evaluate the effect of the level of tick infestation on the estimates of genetic parameters for South African Bonsmara cattle. Field data of repeated tick count records (n = 11 280) on 1 176 animals were collected between 1993 and 2005 by 10 breeders participating in the National Beef Recording and Improvement Scheme. The distribution of tick count records were normalized using a Box-Cox transformation. Data were divided into seven sub-data sets based on the mean tick count per contemporary group, to facilitate the investigation of the effect of level of tick infestation on the derived genetic parameters. A repeatability animal model including the fixed effects of contemporary group and age of animal at tick counting and random effects of ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Crucial role for basophils in acquired protective immunity to tick infestation. AU - Karasuyama, Hajime. AU - Tabakawa, Yuya. AU - Ohta, Takuya. AU - Wada, Takeshi. AU - Yoshikawa, Soichiro. PY - 2018/12/1. Y1 - 2018/12/1. N2 - Ticks are blood-sucking arthropods that can transmit various pathogenic organisms to host animals and humans, causing serious infectious diseases including Lyme disease. Tick feeding induces innate and acquired immune responses in host animals, depending on the combination of different species of animals and ticks. Acquired tick resistance (ATR) can diminish the chance of pathogen transmission from infected ticks to the host. Hence, the elucidation of cellular and molecular mechanism underlying ATR is important for the development of efficient anti-tick vaccines. In this review article, we briefly overview the history of studies on ATR and summarize recent findings, particularly focusing on the role for basophils in the manifestation of ATR. In several ...
Ticks are ectoparasitic arthropods that can transmit a variety of microorganisms to humans and animals during blood feeding, causing serious infectious disorders, including Lyme disease. Acaricides are pharmacologic agents that kill ticks. The emergence of acaricide-resistant ticks calls for alternative control strategies for ticks and tick-borne diseases. Many animals develop resistance to ticks after repeated infestations, but the nature of this acquired anti-tick immunity remains poorly understood. Here we investigated the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying acquired resistance to Haemaphysalis longicornis ticks in mice and found that antibodies were required, as was IgFc receptor expression on basophils but not on mast cells. The infiltration of basophils at tick-feeding sites occurred during the second, but not the first, tick infestation. To assess the requirement for basophil infiltration to acquired tick resistance, mice expressing the human diphtheria toxin receptor under the ...
Tick infestation is observed from early spring to fall. Blood-feeding ticks are very harmful in spreading diseases among people and animals.

Capsule. Tick infestation increased with temperature and vegetation height, and was negatively correlated with Golden Plover Pluvialis apricaria chick survival, but not growth rates.. Aims. To examine the factors associated with tick loads on Golden Plover chicks and whether tick loads correlated with the growth rate or short-term survival probability.. Methods. Twenty-one chicks from eight broods were radio-tagged and recaptured at 4-day intervals to measure tick loads, growth rate and determine survival probability between recaptures.. Results. All broods and 90% of chicks (19/21) had ticks present during at least one recapture, and ticks were present on 81% (70/86) of all recaptures. Mean tick load per capture was 9.2 (range 0-45) which was 13 times higher than the only previous comparable study on wader chicks. Tick loads were highest in warmer weather and when chicks moved through areas with taller average field layer vegetation. Tick loads were also correlated with chick age and date. The ...

Ticks, blood-sucking arthropods, serve as vectors for transmission of infectious diseases including Lyme borreliosis. After tick infestation, several animal species develop resistance to subsequent infestations, reducing the risk of transmission. In a mouse model, basophils reportedly infiltrate tick-feeding sites during the 2nd but not 1st infestation and play a crucial role in the manifestation of acquired tick resistance. However, the mechanism underlying basophil recruitment to the 2nd tick-feeding site remains ill-defined. Here we investigated cells and their products responsible for the basophil recruitment. Little or no basophil infiltration was detected in T cell-deficient mice, and adoptive transfer of CD4+ but not CD8+ T cells reconstituted it. Il3 gene expression was highly upregulated at the 2nd tick-feeding site, and adoptive transfer of IL-3-sufficient but not -deficient CD4+ T cells conferred the basophil infiltration on T cell-deficient mice, indicating the CD4+ T cell-derived IL-3 is

The main reason why you should have ticks removed from your pets is because they can transmit diseases. Lyme disease is probably the most well-known sickness which can be transmitted because of ticks, but thats not the only one. These parasites can also transmit babesiosis, ehrlichiosis, and other diseases which can affect not just animals but humans as well.. Aside from the diseases and sickness which they can cause because of pathogens, tick infestation of a pet can also lead to other issues. For example, a large number of ticks infesting a dog can suck a large amount of the animals blood leading to anemia.There are around 200 tick species which can be found in the United States alone.. ...
Introduction. Tick-borne diseases are major constraints to livestock production throughout the tropics and sub-tropics. Losses in livestock production due to external parasites have long been a major concern to livestock producers in the tropics and subtropics (Seifert, 1984a; b). One million cattle are estimated to have died of East Coast fever in sub-Saharan Africa during 1989 alone (Mukhebi et al., 1992). In South Africa, tick-borne diseases have been estimated to cost the livestock industry about R 70 to R 200 million per year (Bigalke, 1980).. Various tick-borne disease control methods have been employed in South Africa (Bigalke et al., 1976; De Vos, 1979; Purnell & Schroder, 1984). Historically, the earliest tick control trials with dipping agents in South Africa started in 1889. These trials were prompted by the discovery in the USA in 1893 that ticks transmit the causal piroplasm of redwater in cattle (Hayward, 1981). Increase in acaricides prices and drug resistance pose challenges in ...

Here, the clock is ticking on a rehab assignment. When last we saw Mr. Maxwell, he was cemented in the Astros lineup as the everyday center fielder. Since his injury in game #20, the Astros have summoned three different players to start in center. The most recent everyday CF is now back in OKC, and Maxwell is prepping for his return. Whether his .234/.289/.390 line warrants a return to everyday duty, its obvious that Bo Porter likes him in the job. And, at this moment, no one else has stepped up, though its likely that Brandon Barnes will get an opportunity between now and Maxwells return. The question on Maxwell is simple: Will Porter pencil him into the lineup in CF when he returns? Should he? ...

The Haemaphysalis longicornis tick has been suspected to be the vector of SFTSV. To determine whether SFTSV can be transmitted among ticks, from ticks to animals, and from animals to ticks, we conducted transmission studies between developmental stages of H. longicornis ticks and between ticks and mice. Using reverse transcription PCR, we also analyzed the prevalence of SFTSV infection among H. longicornis ticks collected from ...

Modulation of host immune responses by ticks is important for successful blood feeding and facilitation of transmission of tick-borne pathogens in susceptible hosts [16]. This study is the first to examine changes in co-stimulatory molecule expression of antigen presenting cells induced by the SGE of adult female R. microplus. We show that at low physiologic concentrations of SGE, CD86 is up-regulated in a murine macrophage cell line. Previously, it was demonstrated that the number of R. microplus ticks infesting a host can modulate the antibody response to tick saliva; specifically low to moderate levels of infestation promoted an IgE response where as high infestation showed increases in IgG responses [44]. In the presence of IL-4, a Th2 cytokine, CD86 has been shown to promote IgE synthesis in human B cells [45]. R. microplus tick infestation numbers and host breed susceptibility can also alter accumulation of basophils, eosinophils and expression of vascular adhesion molecules involved in ...
Experts are predicting a big jump in black-legged tick (aka deer tick) infestations this year because of a strange chain of events involving white-footed mice and acorns. Basically the white-footed mouse is a favored carrier for black-legged ticks because it is common, low to the ground and has few natural predators. Two years ago we had a huge boom in the acorn crop which led to a huge boom in the white-footed mouse population last year. This in turn led to a huge boom in tick larvae. But this year is apparently a really bad year for acorns and so the mouse population is crashing and the tick larvae, now ready for the next stage of life, are going to have to look elsewhere for their big meal. That means lots of hungry ticks hanging out in the woods.. So, seriously, watch out for those ticks. Besides Lyme disease, ticks can carry other infections. Heres some advice from the CDC.. Other rather gross facts about ticks include that they only eat three times in their lives. Once as larvae (baby ...
The cattle tick Rhipicephalus microplus is a hematophagous ectoparasite that causes important economic losses in livestock. Different species of ticks harbor a symbiont bacterium of the genus Coxiella. It was showed that a Coxiella endosymbiont from R. microplus (CERM) is a vertically transmitted mutualist symbiont, comprising 98% of the 16S rRNA sequences in both eggs and larvae. Sequencing of the bacterial genome revealed genes for biosynthetic pathways for several vitamins and key metabolic cofactors that may provide a nutritional complement to the tick host. The CERM was abundant in ovary and Malpighian tubule of fully engorged female. Tetracycline treatment of either the tick or the vertebrate host reduced levels of bacteria in progeny in 74% for eggs and 90% for larvae without major impact neither on the reproductive fitness of the adult female or on embryo development. However, CERM proved to be essential for the tick to reach the adult life stage, as under antibiotic treatment no tick ...
Cattle babesiosis is a tick-borne disease of cattle with the most severe form of the disease caused by the apicomplexan, Babesia bovis. Babesiosis is transmitted to cattle through the bite of infected cattle ticks of the genus Rhipicephalus. The most prevalent species is Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus, which is distributed throughout the tropical and subtropical countries of the world. The transmission of B. bovis is transovarian and a previous study of the R. microplus ovarian proteome identified several R. microplus proteins that were differentially expressed in response to infection. Through various approaches, we studied the reaction of the R. microplus ovarian transcriptome in response to infection by B. bovis ...
Alternative strategies are required to control the southern cattle tick, Rhipicephalus microplus, due to evolving resistance to commercially available acaricides. This invasive ectoparasite is a vector of economically important diseases of cattle such as bovine babesiosis and anaplasmosis. An understanding of the biological intricacies underlying vector-host-pathogen interactions is required to innovate sustainable tick management strategies that can ultimately mitigate the impact of animal and zoonotic tick-borne diseases. Tick saliva contains molecules evolved to impair host innate and adaptive immune responses, which facilitates blood feeding and pathogen transmission. Antigen presenting cells are central to the development of robust T cell responses including Th1 and Th2 determination. In this study we examined changes in co-stimulatory molecule expression and cytokine response of bovine macrophages exposed to salivary gland extracts (SGE) obtained from 2-3 day fed, pathogen-free adult R. microplus.

Infestations with cattle ticks, Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus and Rhipicephalus annulatus, economically impact cattle production in tropical and subtropical regions of the world. Vaccines containing the recombinant R. microplus BM86 gut antigen were developed and commercialized to induce an immunological protection in cattle against tick infestations. These vaccines demonstrated that tick control by vaccination is cost-effective, reduces environmental contamination and prevents the selection of drug resistant ticks that result from repeated acaricide applications ...
Commercial vaccines based on the Bm86 tick gut antigen are used to control Boophilus microplus. B. Decoloratus and B. annulatus ticks in Australia, South America abd Asia. The vaccine also exhibits potential for control of Hyalomma anatolicum and H. dromedarii but do not induce significant protection against cattle infestation by Rhipicephalus appendiculatus. This therefore indicates the need to develop a vaccine that would protect cattle against R. appendiculatus. In this study, homologues of Bm86 were cloned from R. appendiculatus to determine if they could confer protective immunity in cattle against this tick species. Polymorphism in the R. appendiculatus antigen was assessed in a laboratory stock (Muguga laboratory stock, reared in the laboratory for over 40 years) and four Kenyan field populations from Kiambu, Kakamega, Makuyu and Uasin Gishu. A preliminary experience was conducted to evaluate possible cross-protection against R. appendiculatus by the Bm86 based TickGARD™ Plus vaccive ...
Introduction. Equine piroplasmosis is a protozoan disease caused by two agents in Brazil: Babesia caballi and Theileria equi (BARBOSA et. al., 1995; HEUCHERT et al., 1999; KERBER et al., 1999, CANOLA et al., 2007; HEIM et al. 2007; BALDANI et al., 2008). The severity of clinical signs is variable, and in many cases spontaneous recovery may occur without obvious clinical signs. This is especially true in endemic areas where foals become infected while they are protected by maternal antibodies and other non- specific factors, which render them partially resistant to challenge (RIBEIRO et al.,1995). Maternal antibodies are usually undetectable 3 to 5 months after birth (ALLSOPP et al., 2007; KUMAR et al., 2008). Therefore, foals undergo a non-apparent infection but there is some evidence that stress factors may lead to relapsing clinical episodes later in life (DE WAAL, 1995; FRIEDHOFF, 1988).. Equine piroplasmosis is an important disease of equids and it has a specific impact on international ...

Our understanding of tick questing behaviour is limited by the difficulty of observing ticks without disturbing them. As humans are potential hosts for I. ricinus, the presence of an observer may influence tick behaviours (McMahon and Guerin, 2002). Due to the small size of I. ricinus nymphs, their movements are particularly difficult to study, so most studies on I. ricinus questing behaviour have focused on adults (Gigon, 1985). Tick behaviours last many hours or even days and so continuous observation of single individuals over several days is hardly possible without automation. Furthermore, humans are not able to see ticks in the dark. For these reasons, we developed an automated video-tracking system to record the movements of I. ricinus nymphs continuously, independent of any potential host stimuli and under both light and dark conditions. Using this system, we show that questing and quiescence behaviours of I. ricinus alternate in the absence of any host stimuli. Lees (1946) had already ...
Abstract We measured anti-tick saliva antibody (ATSA) by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay using whole sonicated Ixodes dammini salivary glands as antigen in subjects with 1) a recent and confirmed I. dammini (n = 100) or Dermacentor variabilis bite (n = 3), 2) erythema migrans (n = 15), 3) late-stage Lyme disease (n = 4), and 4) normal controls without a history of tick bites (n = 5). Tick bite subjects had three ATSA determinations over approximately six weeks. On the first ATSA measurement at a mean ± SD of 18.5 ± 19.8 hr after removal of the tick, the subjects bitten by I. dammini had a mean ATSA optical density value (95% confidence interval [CI]) of 0.264 (0.223, 0.305); the corresponding value in controls was 0.142 (0.115, 0.169). There was no consistent change in ATSA levels in individuals with time. Multiple linear regression indicated that tick engorgement (P < 0.01), subject age (higher ATSA with increasing age; P = 0.01), and subject sex (females > males; P = 0.03) were all
Myth: Ticks are only seasonally active in forests. Many people think that ticks can only survive in forests from the spring to fall, but this is no longer true.. With the expanding ranges of their hosts, ticks are appearing in greater numbers close to city centres like Toronto and Montréal. Ticks are even being found in peoples backyards due to the annual reproduction of nearby populations. Unfortunately, some of these ticks have also tested positive for Borrelia burgdorferi, the bacteria that cause Lyme disease.. Myth: Ticks can jump. How do ticks find their way onto people? Many people described having ticks jumping on them from trees, but ticks cant jump. Instead, they patiently sit on low vegetation or crawl around the ground, sensing a hosts carbon dioxide and heat.. Ticks search for their next meal when temperatures are above 4 °C. During the winter, people think that ticks are inactive or dead because of the cold. However, if temperatures rise above freezing for several days, ticks ...
Rickettsial-like cells are reported from the body cavity of the Myanmar amber larval tick, Cornupalpatum burmanicum (Ixodida: Ixodidae).

Tick Diseases: An Overview. This article is reprinted with permission from Owen Johnson, the author. While Owen is not a veterinarian, he has written an important article that is easy to understand.. What Are They? There are many things that make the greyhound breed unique among dogs and one of those is the fact that most often they spend the majority of their lives in a state other than the one in which they were born and raised. Most of them spend their first two to five years (or longer) in the states that have dog racing and it seems those states also have something in common: ticks. In fact, some of the racing states are noted for their tick infestations. And ticks like dogs. When you put together these factors you have a situation that is ripe for high infection rates (over 50% in some areas) in racing greyhounds. Many of the dogs leave the tracks, moving through the adoption process either sick with tick borne diseases (TBD) or carrying them with no noticeable symptoms. Some of these ...
Know How to Identify a Tick. Ticks are arachnids and have two body segments. They have six legs along their abdomen during the larval stage. Adults have eight legs. Adult ticks are 3 to 5 millimeters wide, but an adult female can grow up to 1 centimeter wide after feeding.. Tick Habitats. Ticks live in forests, gardens and dunes. They generally stay 3 feet or less above the ground. When a tick is ready to feed, it will climb to the top of tall grasses or the edge of branches and wait for a host to cross its path.. How to Tell if You Have a Tick. Humans generally do not feel tick bites, and ticks are good at hiding in hard-to-find places, like your hair. If a tick bites you, your skin may become a little red or swollen.. When you remove a tick from your body, place it in a in a sealed container and keep it in the freezer in the event that you develop symptoms of a tick-related disease, which include:. ...
Tick vaccines derived from Bm86, a midgut membrane-bound protein of the cattle tick, Boophilus microplus, are currently the only commercially available ectoparasite vaccines. Despite its introduction to the market in 1994, and the recognized need for alternatives to chemical pesticides, progress in developing effective antitick vaccines (and ectoparasite vaccines in general) is slow. The primary rate-limiting step is the identification of suitable antigenic targets for vaccine development. Two sources of candidate vaccine antigens have been identified: exposed antigens that are secreted in tick saliva during attachment and feeding on a host and concealed antigens that are normally hidden from the host. Recently, a third group of antigens has been distinguished that combines the properties of both exposed and concealed antigens. This latter group offers the prospect of a broad-spectrum vaccine effective against both adults and immature stages of a wide variety of tick species. It also shows ...
You did everything you could to prevent a tick bite, but alas, you lost the battle. It happens to all of us. This is why it is essential to know how to remove a tick when you do indeed find one latched on. First and foremost, you shouldnt panic. Panic can lead to poor tick removal. When you find a tick, it is best to use tweezers to grab the tick as close as you can at the surface of the ticks attachment. Dont smash the tick or twist the tick, this could mean leaving the head latched into your skin. You want to pull back with consistent, light force. Think just enough force to get the job done. Place the tick inside a jar filled with enough alcohol to submerge the tick. You can flush it down a toilet later. Determine how long you feel the tick was attached to you and consider calling your familys medical professional for further instructions. Some doctors may want to run a Lyme disease test.. ...
If you do find a tick on you, dont panic. It usually takes a tick a couple of hours of wandering your body before it settles down to find a good feeding spot. Once a tick inserts its mouth tube into your skin and adheres to you using its cement-like saliva, the tick is embedded. In most cases, removing a tick within 36 - 48 hours after it is embedded prevents the transmission of Lyme disease. Calmly grasp the tick behind its head with a set of tweezers, and pull slowly and firmly to remove it. In the future, help to keep ticks at bay by tucking your socks into your pants and wearing a DEET insect spray. Protect your pets by keeping dogs and cats on a monthly preventative for ticks.. For more information on ticks, including a video of how to remove them, visit these links:. ...
Ticks are blood-feeding parasites that are often found in tall grass where they will wait to attach to a passing host. A tick will attach itself to its host by inserting its chelicerae (cutting mandibles) and hypostome (feeding tube) into the skin. The hypostome is covered with recurved teeth and serves as an anchor.. Seed ticks (tick larvae) also attack horses, cattle, moose, lions and other mammals, causing anemia, various diseases, paralysis and even death. Such infestations can be difficult to detect until thousands have attached themselves to an animal and eradication can be difficult.. Frequent grooming and chemical applications may control the spread of ticks.. Changes in temperature and day length are some of the factors signalling a tick to seek a host. Ticks can detect heat emitted or carbon dioxide respired from a nearby host. They will generally drop off the animal when full, but this may take several days. In some cases ticks will live for some time on the blood of an animal. Ticks ...
Ticks can be seen year-round, but are most visible in the warm summer months. They feed on blood, so they are continually looking for a host to latch onto for a drink. When hosts cannot be found, a tick can go for months, or sometimes more than a year, without feeding. Ticks go from eggs to adult in different stages depending on what kind of tick it is. Some ticks only have a couple of stages, while others go through as many as eight stages. The length of time it takes to go through the stages varies as well, and that partly depends on factors such as temperature, humidity, availability of food, etc. A young tick (of any kind) will have six legs, but an adult tick will have eight and in general, there are two main kinds of ticks; the hard and soft varieties. It is necessary for a female tick to have a blood meal before she can lay eggs. After feeding, she will usually drop off the host to lay her eggs. The number of eggs will vary, but some ticks can lay ten thousand eggs at one time. This means ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Host body size and the diversity of tick assemblages on Neotropical vertebrates. AU - Esser, Helen J.. AU - Foley, Janet E. AU - Bongers, Frans. AU - Herre, Edward Allen. AU - Miller, Matthew J.. AU - Prins, Herbert H T. AU - Jansen, Patrick A.. PY - 2016/12/1. Y1 - 2016/12/1. N2 - Identifying the factors that influence the species diversity and distribution of ticks (Acari: Ixodida) across vertebrate host taxa is of fundamental ecological and medical importance. Host body size is considered one of the most important determinants of tick abundance, with larger hosts having higher tick burdens. The species diversity of tick assemblages should also be greater on larger-bodied host species, but empirical studies testing this hypothesis are lacking. Here, we evaluate this relationship using a comparative dataset of feeding associations from Panama between 45 tick species and 171 host species that range in body size by three orders of magnitude. We found that tick species diversity ...
Ticks can be found year-round but are most prevalent in the warm summer months. They are parasites, and as a result, are on a continual quest for a host. If a host is not available, a tick can survive up to a year without feeding.. A female tick must have a blood meal before she can lay eggs. After feeding, she drops off her host and lays thousands of eggs. A female tick lays one batch of eggs, after which she dies. A male tick also dies after reproducing.. There are two established families of ticks: hard ticks and soft. A tick matures from egg to adult in stages. Depending on the family, some reach maturity in only a few stages of growth. Other varieties may take as many as eight stages to develop. The length of time to reach maturity also depends on factors as temperature, humidity and availability of food. With regard to physical characteristics, an immature tick has six legs; a full-grown adult has eight.. Ticks transmit a number of diseases as a result of feeding off both human and animal ...
This is the first volume of a two-volume work on the basic biology, ecology, disease transmission and control of ticks. Ticks are parasitic insects that infect cattle, birds and people. The health and economic consequences of ticks are so considerable that most land- grant universities have tick laboratories associated with their entomology departments. In addition, state and federal health officials are concerned with disease transmission by ticks. This first volume covers the anatomy, functional morphology, physiology, reproduction, development and ecology of ticks. The descriptions are comprehensive and fully up-to-date. Entomologists, and in particular tick specialists (acarologists), as well as public health officials, will find this work of interest. It will also be extremely useful to advanced students beginning research in these fields. Volume 2 will focus on ticks and disease, with sections on immunological response to tick parasitism, and the control of ticks and disease.
