Author(s): Bigya Dhital and Rameshwor Pudasaini
Abstract: Ticks cause serious economic losses in cattle and an experiment was conducted to test efficacy of different ethno-veterinary products against ticks in Lamjung, Nepal during 2017-2018. The experiment was designed in completely randomized design with seven treatments and four replications. Cattle ticks (Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus) were collected, reared and produced next generation for the test. After 1 hour of treatment application, least number of ticks were found live in Cypermetrhrin application (2.5%) followed by Neem (10%), saltwater (25%), chinaberry and Mug-wort (27.5%). This study clearly shows that different ethno-veterinary products may be the alternative to manage the cattle ticks in the context of developing resistancy to acaricides.
