A survey of ixodid ticks
undertaken on crested francolin Dendroperdix sephaena (Smith, 1836) on the farm Sandspruit in the Waterberg, showed evidence of this species being prevalent in this area (Uys & Horak 2005).
During the period of 2006-2010 (May to September of each year), ixodid ticks
were sampled in different areas of St.
The main vectors of CCHFV are ticks in the genus Hyalomma, family Ixodidae, with other ixodid ticks
and ticks from the family Argasidae also contributing to transmission (2).
Khudrathulla and Jagannath (108) studied the effect of a methanolic extract of Styloxanthes scabra on ixodid ticks
of traditionally managed cattle in central Nigeria: Where Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus does not dare (yet?

- woodland and heathland areas in southern and south-western England, the Lake District, the Scottish Highlands and Islands, North York moors, Thetford Forest and the South Downs are considered high-risk areas.
Virus transmission is mainly through the bite of infected Rhipicephalus appendiculatus ticks though a large number of other Ixodid ticks
are involved in the maintenance of the virus in nature.
Human Monocytic Ehrlichiosis (HME) is a vector-borne disease transmitted through the bite of Ixodid ticks
carrying the obligate intraleucocytic bacterium Ehrlichia chaffeensis.
