    Twelve different tick species in four genera were identified from a total of 16 specimens collected. Of all the ticks collected, Rhipicephalus spp. constituted %, Amblyomma spp. %, Boophilus spp. % and Hyalomma spp. %. The ventral parts of cattle were found to be the most favoured feeding sites for most of the ticks collected. Ixodid definition is - of or relating to a family (Ixodidae) of ticks (such as the deer tick and American dog tick) having a hard outer shell and feeding on usually three hosts during the life cycle. How to use ixodid .

    It specifically addresses 35 ixodid species and 10 argasid species of the recognized species of ticks that commonly bite people. Risk of transmission to humans in foci of tick-borne diseases is determined by such factors as the density of competent vectors and reservoir hosts, infection thresholds of the pathogens, and the behaviors of. The costs of controlling tick-borne diseases in Uganda constitute around 80% of the total annual costs to control livestock diseases in the country [].For example, ECF can kill annually 30% of newborn calves of indigenous cattle and up to % of crossbred or pure cattle [].According to the report produced by the presidential Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) on the tick resistance challenge.

Ixodid (hard) ticks, especially those of the genus, Hyalomma, are both a reservoir and a vector for the CCHF virus. Numerous wild and domestic animals, such as cattle, goats, sheep and hares, serve as amplifying hosts for the virus.

Transmission to humans occurs through contact with infected ticks or animal blood.The Ixodidae are the family of hard ticks or scale ticks, one of the two big families of ticks, consisting of over are known as 'hard ticks' because they have a scutum or hard shield, which the other big family of ticks, the 'soft ticks' (), are ectoparasites of a wide range of host species, and some are vectors of pathogens that can cause human disease.Ixodid ticks on cattle on Kikuyu grass pastures and in Valley Bushveld in the Eastern Cape Province.
