III Although effective, these devices overall require more labor and maintenance to achieve quality levels of control compared with our host-targeted techniques (Barnes and Kartman 1960, Barnes et al. Hung 2018 Jan;18(1):55-64. doi: 10.1089/vbz.2017.2146. Likewise, areawide applications tend to be seasonal and short term, and are often criticized for their impact on the environment. 4). Wilson and M.C.D. (fipronil-treated) compared with untreated control areas. Since the discovery that I. scapularis transmits several disease agents to humans, including Lyme borreliosis, babesiosis, and ehrlichiosis, many studies have been conducted to evaluate tick control techniques. Vitale August is the month of peak larval abundance, and the number of treated properties infested with larvae was compared with untreated sites for larval infestations for that month. Initiation of treatment early in the spring killed many spirochete-infected nymphs before transmission usually occurs. 1997; Lane et al. Falco R. S. Results indicated that modified commercial bait boxes were effective as an acaricide delivery method for reducing nymphal and larval tick infestations on white-footed mice by 68 and 84%, respectively. ; only 10.3% became infected during the treatment period compared with 42.9% during the pretreatment period (P = 0.0187). 3C) and 13.9 ticks per mouse in the untreated areas (Fig. Boobar This field trial was conducted from April through September on Mason’s Island, New London County. Ixodes ricinus usually are found on dogs only singly or in small numbers. T.

J. F. Rather, host-seeking larvae were flagged on treated and untreated sites to determine relative distribution. 4A). Alternative methods to control Lyme disease vector ticks include vegetation management and landscape modifications, reduction of host species populations, and biological control (Wilson et al. Passive application of fipronil significantly reduced the infection rate of Borrelia burgdorferi among white-footed mice by 53%. J. W. W. E. 3C) infestation rate with 0.36 (Fig. T. L.

A 0.43% (AI) topical oil formulation of fipronil was used in May and June 1999. Campbell Stafford COVID-19 is an emerging, rapidly evolving situation. 1993), although these efforts were seasonal and short term. N. A. Malan Protection against B. burgdorferi transmission was afforded to young mice in the New Areas with results similar to those observed on Nauyaug Pt. Casher A total of 6,025 ticks was collected from these mice. In 1999, initial treatment with fipronil began on 17 May, and at 4-wk intervals each box was rebaited with one to two Detex bait blocks as needed, and the wick was replenished with 2–3 ml of fipronil formulation as needed throughout the trial. A. J. Lyme disease is the most common vector-borne disease in the United States. Telford We express our appreciation to Joseph Piesman, Centers for Disease Control (CDC), for project guidance and a review of the manuscript; Christine Sykes, CDC, for expert technical assistance; and Amy Ullmann, CDC, for statistical analyses. 4A). 1985, Slajchert et al. 1. Nelson Mice treated with 1% fipronil remained completely protected at 28 d, whereas the first signs of successful tick feeding were observed at 28 d in the remaining three groups receiving single doses of 0.43, 0.5, and 0.75% fipronil. Two nontoxic Detex monitoring bait blocks (Bell Laboratories, Madison, WI) were placed in the feeding chamber of each box. A single 200-mg dose of doxycycline given within 72 hours after an I. scapularis tick bite can prevent the development of Lyme disease. . However, for host-targeted techniques to be effective, an efficient means of applying or delivering acaricides to host species is required. J. 4B). χ2 also was used to determine significance for percentage of reduction of adult and nymphal ticks infected with B. burgdorferi and A. phagocytophilum in Tables 3 and 4 (SAS release 8.01 software). Bromet-Petit Weather conditions during the weeks before and during pretreatment collections made in April and May 1999 were extremely rainy, windy, and cold and may have been responsible for inhibiting normal host-seeking activity patterns for I. scapularis nymphs on the highly exposed and windswept Nauyaug Pt. Weil . Jacobs J. E. Control of immature questing ticks on Nauyaug Pt. B. G. P. Southeastern and south-central United States. Posttreatment trapping was conducted at monthly intervals from June through September all 3 yr to determine 1) distribution and density of mice on properties, 2) tick burdens on treated and untreated animals, and 3) prevalence of infection with B. burgdorferi in mice in treated and untreated sites. . . 2006 May;296 Suppl 40:17-22. doi: 10.1016/j.ijmm.2005.11.007. C. A. Schneider The remaining 70 boxes were set out on an additional 10 properties during the week of 23 June. Ribeiro Lemeilleur However, ticks that did not demonstrate evidence of blood in the midgut were nonmotile and in obvious stages of physical degradation (emaciated, missing setae and/or legs that broke apart easily) were considered moribund at the time of collection. Spielman As the deer feed, they are passively treated with an acaricide for controlling ticks. Lane E. M. At 42 d after treatment, only 6% of nymphal ticks fed to repletion in the group treated with 0.75% fipronil compared with 74% on untreated animals (Table 1). Burgdorfer W. L. Ticks matching this description were recovered from treated areas only. C. C. Zeidner Dolan No. Jones Treatment was terminated the final week of September for each year. From 1999 to 2000 the number of treated properties was expanded to include the center of the island that parallels an undeveloped natural area. The number of nymphs per minute for the New Areas during 2001 was reduced by 68% (95 nymphs, 0.35 nymphs per minute, 8% infected with Bb) (P < 0.001). By effectively controlling ticks on mice, questing adults on Nauyaug Pt. Shower, shampoo, and put on clean clothes after … J. 1982), occurs by the bite of Ixodes ticks. Int J Med Microbiol. Because fipronil is undetectable to ticks before they attach to a host, determination of whether ticks were alive or dead at the time of collection was made by microscopic examination. (1987, 1988) sought to control adult populations of I. scapularis by using ground spraying equipment to apply diazinon and carbaryl to natural habitat. Poché DM, Franckowiak G, Clarke T, Tseveenjav B, Polyakova L, Poché RM. A record of relative use by white-footed mice was kept for each box during the trial. During the second year, a total of 4 liters (30 g) of 0.75% (AI) fipronil was used to treat 315 bait boxes bimonthly. Harlan . 1992; Curran et al. In addition to targeting specific ecotone, bait boxes also were placed near woodpiles and outbuildings. In 2000, 44 properties in total were treated with 315 fipronil-treated bait boxes. Animals were handled according to approved protocols on file with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Division of Vector-Borne Infectious Diseases Animal Care and Use Committee. 2B) fipronil-treated bait box began on 15 May, and boxes were left in place until they were replaced with the modified Protecta Jr. mouse bait box (Fig. A. The 154 treated properties on the island were divided with approximately one-half receiving Prototype 2 fipronil-treated boxes containing Detex monitoring bait blocks and one half receiving Prototype 2 fipronil-treated boxes containing the scented cotton ball. 3C) with 6.3 ticks per mouse (Fig. No nymphal deer ticks were collected off white-footed mice during the second season of fipronil-treatment on the 13 properties on Nauyaug Pt. Schug 4C). Host-targeted bait boxes can be set out in early May and ensure effectiveness throughout seasonal, peak nymphal activity. 4A) that several mice in the fipronil-treated area had nymphs attached to the head area, but these ticks had died in situ before feeding. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) combined with direct sequencing methods were used to characterize the potential … afforded minimal risk due to tick bite by nymphal deer ticks for residents of treated properties. .

Impact of abiotic factors, habitat type and urban wildlife on the ecology of hard ticks (Acari: Ixodidae) in urban and peri-urban habitats. Continuing collaborative developmental efforts between CDC and Bayer Environmental Science (previously Aventis Environmental Science) are underway to produce a bait box that meets EPA safety and registration criteria, will last several weeks without maintenance, and will accommodate use by eastern chipmunks, a secondary but important host for immature I. scapularis and B. burgdorferi (Anderson et al. E. M. Moreover, the abundance of questing I. scapularis adults on treated properties was reduced by 77% and fewer were infected with spirochetes (31%) compared with untreated sites (47%) after 3 yr of treatment. 1987, 1988; Deblinger et al. P. J. HHS This research was made possible through a competitive Emerging Infectious Disease Initiative, Emerging Infectious Disease Discretionary Fund, through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Division of Vector-Borne Infectious Diseases, Bacterial Zoonoses Branch, Lyme Disease Vector Section, Fort Collins, CO. G.O.M. 15 May–July, properties received Prototype 2 bait boxes; modified Protecta Jr. boxes were used August and September. T. During this 3-yr study, 36.4% of young mice in the untreated areas were spirochete-infected during the pretreatment period (May), and 32.1% became infected on recapture from June through September. Unlike permethrin, a widely used acaricide, ticks are unable to detect fipronil on topically treated animals. However, it is not known whether antimicrobial agents can effectively cure incubating Borrelia burgdorferi infection. These methods are desirable due to the reduced risk of acaricide exposure to nontarget species and minimal environmental contamination. 2015;370:20140051. Jordan In the United States, the blacklegged tick, Ixodes scapularisSay affects the greatest number o… In Study 2, tick infesta-tions with I. scapularis in the BravectoTM-group were per-formed at 1 day after treatment (week 1), and dogs in the negative-control group were infested three days later (due to resource constraints). A single oral treatment with a dose approaching the minimum effective dose of afoxolaner (2.5 mg/kg) eliminated the pre-existing infestations of I. scapularis ticks and controlled weekly re-infestations, with efficacy between 98% and 100% recorded until Day 23 and 94% at Day 30. L. A. Spirochete-infected P. leucopus (67.9% of 666 mice) were present at all five untreated collection sites. G. O. J. Montman  |  Spielman The only increase occurred during the larval peak in August (1.8 ticks per mouse) (Fig. The black-legged (or deer) tick, Ixodes scapularis, commonly infests dogs in the USA and is the vector of important zoonotic pathogens, including Borrelia burgdorferi, the causative agent of Lyme disease. Fipronil, a recently developed phenylpyrazole insecticide/acaricide, is an ideal compound to afford the required protection for this type of host-targeted delivery system. V. B. All 1,700 bait boxes contained a wick treated with 0.75% (AI) fipronil. D. E. Of particular interest is the impact that fipronil-treatment had on the natural enzootic transmission cycle of B. burgdorferi among I. scapularis and P. leucopus. Each captured mouse was tested for infection with B. burgdorferi. Dolan The principal goal of the current study was to test the hypothesis that passively applied fipronil in a rodent bait box effectively reduced the number of host-seeking I. scapularis. Ticks on the 13 properties of Nauyaug Pt. Ixodes scapularis is the vector causing all cases of Lyme disease in the United States. Prophylaxis with single-dose doxycycline for the prevention of Lyme disease after an Ixodes scapularis tick bite . M. J. These observations underscore the need for an acaricide with considerable residual activity and adequate potency to protect mice from tick infestation. Ticks Tick Borne Dis. George F. W. Ixodes scapularis is a three-host tick, feeding once at each life stage (larva, nymph, adult), and lives for 2-4 years in order to complete this cycle. 1987, 1988; Gage et al. Fish Moreover, the abundance of questing I. scapularis adults on treated properties was reduced by 77% and fewer were infected with spirochetes (31%) compared with untreated sites (47%) after 3 yr of treatment. Sixty (2000) and 100% (2001) of 34 treated properties in New Areas were infested with larvae in August. III Rash. Of these boxes, 850 contained three Detex nontoxic monitoring bait blocks (total of 78 properties), and 850 contained a cotton ball scented with 5 ml of an orange/almond extract (total of 76 properties) (Table 2). Finally, infection rates in flagged nymphal ticks for both B. burgdorferi and Anaplasma phagocytophilum were reduced by 67 and 64%, respectively, after only 2 yr of treatment. Korytko M. L. . J. Williams SC, Little EAH, Stafford KC 3rd, Molaei G, Linske MA. 84 days (week 12) after treatment. Percentage of reduction of infected mice on Nauyaug Pt. A 3-yr community-based study was conducted on residential properties on Mason's Island, Mystic, CT, to determine the efficacy of a rodent-targeted acaricide (fipronil) to control immature Ixodes scapularis (Say) on Peromyscus leucopus. One such method has been designed to take advantage of nest-building behaviors of white-footed mice (Mather et al. T. N. J. S. Surveys for host-seeking stages of deer ticks were conducted as follows: April and May for adults, June and July for nymphs, and July, August, and September for larvae (Piesman et al. Humane Use of Cardiac Puncture for Non-Terminal Phlebotomy of Wild-Caught and Released. Maupin T. N. Johnson However, the percentage of replete nymphs (16%) at even the lowest concentration of fipronil (0.43%) was dramatically lower than the control group (76% of nymphs fed to repletion). Schulze 09/595,177, and 3) Methods to Control Arthropods. Ear-biopsy culture results performed on P. leucopus demonstrated that the transmission cycle of Lyme disease on Mason’s Island is very intense. Evaluating the effectiveness of an integrated tick management approach on multiple pathogen infection in Ixodes scapularis questing nymphs and larvae parasitizing white-footed mice. 1981, Maupin and Piesman 1994, Panella et al. Evaluation of Doxycycline-Laden Oral Bait and Topical Fipronil Delivered in a Single Bait Box to Control Ixodes scapularis (Acari: Ixodidae) and Reduce Borrelia burgdorferi and Anaplasma phagocytophilum Infection in Small Mammal Reservoirs and Host-Seeking Ticks. This method resulted in a 99% reduction of Ixodes spinipalpis (Nuttall) and Dermacentor andersoni (Stiles) and 11 species of fleas on Mexican woodrats (Baird) throughout 12 mo of study in Colorado. J. F. Boxes were spaced ≈10 m apart along the interface of maintained landscaping (predominantly lawn) with woodlot, stonewall, or scrub brush consisting of both native plants and feral cultivars to specifically target mouse/tick habitat (Maupin et al. The immature stages of I. scapularis that parasitize white-footed mice are nymphs that are most active from April to July, whereas larvae feed mainly from July to September. The amount of bait consumed, feces within the bait box, presence of dirt and debris on treated wicks, and depletion of fipronil from wicks determined relative use. Rimmer during all 3 yr were significantly controlled. In 2000, initial treatment with fipronil began on 19 May (245 boxes on 34 properties) and at 2-wk intervals, each box was checked to add bait and fipronil as necessary. Posttreatment results on these 21 properties reflect a dramatic reduction in the percentage of infested mice and the number of ticks per mouse within 3 wk of the initial application of fipronil and tick numbers were significantly curtailed through the end of September. Massung Results from this 3-yr trial indicate that the use of fipronil passively applied to reservoir animals by bait boxes is an environmentally acceptable means to control ticks, interrupt the natural disease transmission cycle, and reduce the risk of Lyme disease for residents of treated properties. Characteristic morulae may be present in granulocytes. Overall results on fipronil-treated properties demonstrated a nearly 80% reduction of I. scapularis nymphal tick populations after the first year of treatment and a 96% reduction over 2 yr. 1997). . R. D. H. J. No.09/595,034, 2) Control of Arthropods on Rodents U.S. Patent Ser. Schulze A standard method of flagging treated properties and untreated areas was followed; flagging was conducted where ticks were most likely to be present for each property, and properties were sampled for the same duration (Maupin et al. Ixodes scapularis is the vector transmitting Borrelia burgdorferi, the cause of Lyme disease, in the East, including New England and the eastern mid-Atlantic states as far south as Virginia (≥90% of all cases), as well as the upper midwest. 2000).

Borşan SD, Toma-Naic A, Péter Á, Sándor AD, Peștean C, Mihalca AD. R. C. A total of 11 host-seeking nymphs (four nymphs in 2000 and seven in 2001) were collected on the 13 properties on Nauyaug Pt. Magnarelli When a diagnosis of human granulocytic anaplasmosis is suspected, treatment should never be delayed to await laboratory confirmation. Figures 3B and 4B show that in May, tick infestation rates on mice in these New Areas were similar to those in untreated controls. Campos Little EAH, Williams SC, Stafford KC 3rd, Linske MA, Molaei G. Exp Appl Acarol. Schulze Maupin . Similarly, during 3 yr of fipronil application on the Nauyaug Pt. Piesman 4C). Results of subsequent research at several mainland sites are in accordance with levels of control seen on our island setting (G.O.M., unpublished data). However, this number represents an 89% reduction compared with the number of ticks per mouse (17.1) in the untreated areas (Fig. 1997). Medevitt NexGard kills adult fleas and is indicated for the treatment and prevention of flea infestations (Ctenocephalides felis), and the treatment and control of Black-legged tick (Ixodes scapularis), American Dog tick (Dermacentor variabilis), Lone Star tick (Amblyomma americanum), and Brown dog tick (Rhipicephalus sanguineus) infestations in dogs and puppies 8 weeks of age and older, weighing 4 pounds of body weight or greater, for one month.

Of primary interest are those methods that focus on targeting the hosts of I. scapularis. Montenieri J. Infection rates in nymphs from the New Areas in June 2001 resulted in a significant decrease to 4% for Ap (P < 0.001). J. G. U. D. Lastavica M. A. A total of 6,248 trap nights resulted in the capture of 1,821 P. leucopus (29.2% trap success rate), the principal reservoir for B. burgdorferi in the northeastern United States. It furthers the University's objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide, This PDF is available to Subscribers Only. This increased the number of fipronil-treated properties to a total of 44 developed land parcels (≈40 ha). F. H. R. D. Bioassay of fipronil in Adonis formulation required to kill I. scapularis nymphs. Upon replacement of these boxes (30 July 2001) with the original prototype, a modified Protecta Jr. bait box, no ticks were collected from 54 P. leucopus trapped during August and September 2001 (Figs. Stafford 1991, Goodman et al. Note that nymphal peak activity occurs during June and the larval peak during August. Fish 3C) resulted in a slight increase in the number of infested mice (12%), and the number of ticks/mouse (2.8) (Fig. In May 2001, the number of fipronil-treated properties was expanded to a total of 154 properties (≈150 ha; additional 110 properties designated new areas 2001).

Biggerstaff The mean number of ticks per mouse declined steadily from 2.1 in June to 0.9 in September (Fig. Ixodes scapularis is the main vector of Lyme disease in North America. The total number of ticks collected during all 3 yr resulted in 4,647 ticks collected from 666 P. leucopus (6.98 ticks per mouse) from the untreated control areas, 919 ticks were collected from a total of 299 P. leucopus (3.07 ticks per mouse) from the New Areas, and 78 ticks were collected from a total of 452 P. leucopus (0.17 ticks per mouse) from Nauyaug Pt. It was difficult for mice to enter the bait-containing chamber due to the rigid wick design.
