The Spinose Ear Tick and Methods of Treating Infested Animals

Description: "Ear ticks are blood-sucking parasites which infest the ears of cattle, horses, sheep, dogs, and other animals. They are prevalent in the semiarid sections of the southwestern part of the United States, where they cause heavy losses among live stock. The parasites cannot be eradicated by dipping, but they may be controlled and the losses prevented by injecting into the ears of infested animals a mixture of pine tar and cottonseed oil. A brief description of the tick, its life history, and instructions for treating infested animals are given in this bulletin." -- p. 2
