Abstract

LABARTHE, Norma V.. Biological control of tick populations: review and reflections. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 1994, vol.10, n.1, pp. 47-52. ISSN 0102-311X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-311X1994000100005.

This study is concerned with aspects of the relationship between ticks and their hosts that have a bearing on biological control of tick populations. It proposes control methods based on a program that would combine development of an effective vaccine with genetic selection of hosts.
