Ticks have long proven to be important pests in livestock production systems. Tick species including the Common Dog Tick, the Brown Dog Tick, the Gulf Coast Tick and the Deer Tick are present in our environment and are implicated in spreading
diseases in many species including humans and livestock.
Recently, a new species, the Asian Longhorn Tick (Haemaphysalis longicornis), has spread down the east coast of the US. The Asian Longhorn Tick reproduces quickly and has caused severe infestations in livestock, leading to weakness, anemia or even death of animals.
