Without the host providing both food and shelter, the louse would die. This can happen for about two weeks until the louse becomes too old and soon after it loses fertility and the ability to lay eggs, it dies. Because the louse is so lvis in North America, very much of the cattle are affected and must be carefully treated and looked after.

One method of control attempted is through the use of the fungus Metarhizium anisopliae. The presence of the louse causes the ovsi to lick itself excessively thus causing abrasions and hair loss.

Efficacy against sheep lice (Bovicola ovis) and fleece wetting of six shower dip preparations.

All treatments were applied through a shower dip Sunbeam model SSD. Bovicola bovis Linnaeus The degree to which the fleece was wetted was assessed 20 minutes after dipping bovicila showed that the wettable powder dips penetrated the fleece less than the emulsifiable concentrate dips.

The effects of B. There are no known cases of the louse transmitting any kind of disease causing agent. Densities of lice bovicol determined at 69 body sites in eight body regions at approximately monthly intervals for 2 years. The head of these lice is a dark red color while the rest of the body is yellowish-white. The relative efficacy of 6 shower dip chemicals most frequently used for the treatment of sheep lice Bovicola ovis in Western Australia was examined.

Europe PMC requires Javascript to function effectively. The louse is also mostly found in the winter and early spring because that is when the hair of the host is longest and the cattle bovicpla not started shedding yet. Comparisons of lice per part with the numbers of lice extracted from clipped patches indicated that a sheep with wool bearing area of 1 m2 and a mean count of one louse per 10 cm fleece parting carried approximately lice.

There is no current means of long term control for the B. They do, however, lack the maxillae that are common to most insects that chew their food.

Implications of the observed distributions of lice for the efficacy of chemical treatments are discussed. These lice are composed of three major body regions: In the latter case, please turn on Javascript support in your web browser and reload this page. Upon mating, the louse becomes fertilized and can lay eggs. The main reason that these two industries are the ovvis affected is that the louse causes reduction in weight gain and milk production. Or filter your current search.


Polypay ewes had higher densities of lice than Columbias at most inspections but there was little effect of infestation point or mating on either numbers or the distribution of lice. The products of the cattle are also of lower quality than they would be without presence of the louse.

The abdomen has dark transverse bands that run horizontally across each segment along with sparse amounts of setae hair-like structures. On average, these lice can span from mm in length as adults.

Veterinary Parasitology [01 Mar81 4: The distribution of lice on the lambs was similar to that on the ewes except that fewer lice were found on the head. In the second year, half of the ewes were mated and lice bovicla counted at 26 body sites on the resulting lambs.

Maturation from hatching to adulthood takes about two to three weeks. In more extreme cases, anemia can result from the presence of the louse.

These lice chew on their hosts, which means that they have mandibles for feeding. In contrast, treatment with the wettable powders, which contained either coumaphos or magnesium fluorosilicate as the active ingredient, did not eradicate the lice infestations.

Inspections for lice were conducted until 9 months after dipping. They also have clubbed, filiform antennae that extend out the sides of their heads. Bovicola bovis also called Damalinia bovis and the red louse is a cattle-biting louse found all over the world.
