(University of Nairobi., 1995-11)
Spores of two entomogenous fungi, Beauveria bassiana and Metarhizium anisopliae, were mixed with sterile sand at two different concentrations (1.0 and 0.5 g/liter) and larvae of tsetse flies Glossina morsitans morsitans ...
Acaricidal activity of Margaritaria discoidea (Euphorbiaceae) plant extracts against the ticks Rhipicephalus appendiculatus and Amblyomma variegatum (Ixodidae)
(Uniiversity of Nairobi., 1995)
A water soluble extract of M. discoidea, an African indigenous plant induced high mortalities in nymphs of both Rhipicephalus appendiculatus, and Amblyomma variegatum and in adult R. appendiculatus, but not in adult A. ...
Repellence of the tickRhipicephalus appendiculatus by the grassMelinis minutiflora
(Uniiversity of Nairobi., 1995-11)
In a study to develop anti-tick pastures, the climbing behaviour ofRhipicephalus appendiculatus onMelinis minutiflora (molasses grass) was investigated. Experiments were done with cut green stems of grass, grass dried in ...
Experimental infections of the tick Rhipicephalus appendiculatus with entomopathogenic fungi, Beauveria bassiana and Metarhizium anisopliae, and natural infections of some ticks with bacteria and fungi
(University of Nairobi., 1995-09)
Two strains of the entomogenous fungus, Beauveria bassiana, were found to be pathogenic to all stages of the tick Rhipicephalus appendiculatus in the laboratory. A mortality of up to 73 percent of unfed adults was recorded, ...
