identification et cinétique saisonnière des tiques parasites des bovins dans la région de taher (Jijel) Algérie

Abstract : From June 2002 to May 2003, a study was carried out in the area of Taher (Jijel, Algerian littoral) in order to identify the tick species found on cattle and their population dynamics. Five species were identified: Boophilus annulatus (79,96%), Rhipicephalus bursa (9,35%), R. turanicus (2,64%), Hyalomma lusitanicum (5,48%), Hyalomma detritum (2,55%). On the other hand, the study of the dynamics revealed a seasonal activity mainly for summer for Boophilus annulatus and spring for Rhipicephalus bursa, R. turanicus and Hyalomma lusitanicum. In contrast, Hyalomma detritum is present in spring and summer. These dates must be taken into account with respect to the control of cattle tick infections in this area. This is particularly important in the case of Boophilus annulatus, Rhipicephalus bursa et Hyalomma detritum which act as important vectors of babesiosis and theileriosis.
