Fig. 1.

Comparison of the average effects of Huwa-San TR50 on the mortality of camel ticks (H. dromedarii Koch) and cattle ticks (H. impeltatum Schulze & Schlottke) under laboratory conditions after 24h of exposure, expressed as a percentage of the control mortality in distilled water. Each bar is the mean ± SEM of 4 replicates of 30 ticks each.

Fig. 2.

Camel tick, (Hyalomma dromedarii Koch) treated with Huwa-San TR50 under laboratory conditions. Picture A shows non-treated H. dromedarii (control), Picture B, Picture C and Picture D show the cuticle damage of H. dromedarii treated with 1000, 12000 and 14000 ppm of Huwa-San TR50, respectively. Pictures were taken after 24 h of direct spray treatment.

Cattle tick, (Hyalomma impeltatum Schulze & Schlottke) treated with Huwa-San TR50 under laboratory conditions. Picture A shows non-treated H. impeltatum (control), Picture B, Picture C and Picture D show cuticle damage of H. impeltatum treated with 1000, 12000 and 14000 ppm of Huwa-San TR50, respectively. Pictures were taken after 24 h of direct spray treatment.
