Mangoye, Zambia Journal of Science & Technology, Vol. 9, No. 1, Pp. 58 – 68,
ticks were observed to be resistant to acaricides. Boophiliw decolonitaw from
Sinunental and Shangala, Rhipicephalus evert;i from Soiwezi, Kainseche
and Simaponda and R. appeUdiaLlatiw from Makeni were all resistant to
toiaphene. B. decotomtas from Sjnrniental, longe, and Galaunia were
further observed to be resistant to dioiathion with w)w values of
0.18,0.04 and 0.09% w/v, respectively. An the strains tested
against chiorfenviaphos and amitrat were susceptible. The didijoester
groups in dioxathion were observed to be the taraet in the
ticks which developed resistance to dioxathion as the same ticks were
found to be resistant to carbophenothion (trithion) and its oxygen analogue.
