Tick Control


  • Any newly purchased animal should be completely de-ticked before allowing to mix with other animals.
  • Carry out periodic application of acaricide on the animal.
  • Each adult tick lays around 3000 eggs and the larvae can survive  from 2-7 months , based on the climate, without feeding.
  • All cracks and crevices in the cattle shed therefore should be sprayed with a higher concentration of the acaricide along with application on the body to avoid re-infestation. Flaming also can be done using a flame gun if available, with a little bit of caution.
  • The acaricide group should be changed often to avoid resistance from developing.
  • The acaricide should be applied in proper concentration.
  • Seek advice from a veterinarian on the appropriate acaricide and its dosage.
