Abstract


An enquiry was made about different modes of breeding of cattle, the species parasitizing the bovines, and the organs preferred by ticks from June 2012 to November 2012.In total 1439 ticks were collected from 159 cows, on the abdomen and leg, the dewlap and encolure, ano-genital, tail, ear and face. Five species of ticks were collected succemvely with the following frequency: Rhipicephalus appendiculatus (46, 8%), Rhipicephalus appendiculatus (21, 3), Boophilus decoloratus (17%), Amblyomma variegatum (14, 8), Haemaphysalis Leachi Leachi (0, 13) as well as the knowledge of their preferable organs on the bovines. The use of rearing in absolute stalling was displayed here and there, which exposes them to ticks and others deseases.Finally the knowledge of acaricid products and their use proved to be of much avail in the farm.

Author Keywords: Identification, Ticks, Parasites, Bovines et South Kivu.


Abstract: (french)


Cette étude a été conduite de juin à Novembre 2012 sur les bovins au Sud-Kivu cela pour récolter et identifier les différentes espèces des tiques qui les parasitent. Elle avait pour objectif de connaitre ces espèces qui sont dans certaines zones agro écologiques de cette province et éventuellement les dangers que courent ces bovins. Ainsi 1439 tiques ont été récoltées sur des organes anatomiques de 159 bovins avec comme fréquence : Rhipicephalus appendiculatus (46, 8%), Rhipicephalus compositus (21, 3), Boophilus decoloratus (17%), Amblyomma variegatum (14, 8), Haemaphysalis Leachi Leachi (0, 13). Cette étude à prouve que les tiques se fixent sur les bovins selon des organes anatomiques préférés (Oreilles, face…queue et que chaque espèce de tiques transmet ses microorganismes sources des maladies chez le bovins.
