Abstract


The susceptibility of Boophilus microplus ticks to nine insecticides was evaluated in vitro through immersion test. The insecticides contained the following compounds: Alphamethrin + Dichlorvos, Amitraz, Cypermethrin, Cypermethrin + Chlorphenvinphos, Coumaphos, Deltamethrin, Dichlorvos + Cypermethrin, Dichlorvos + Chlorphenvinphos and Zetacypermethrin. Ticks were collected from dairy cows in 17 properties of the northeast of the Sao Paulo State. Only three formulations reached recommended effectiveness (³ 95,0%): Cypermethrin + Chlorphenvinphos in nine properties, with average 89,69% ± 15,49, Dichlorvos + Chlorphenvinphos in eight, with average 91,22% ± 11,50 and the Amitraz in seven, with 78,62% ± 24,47. The results did not differ significantly (P > 0,05) from each other.
