Ectoparasites are costly for livestock producers. Losses are associated with discomfort and damage to hides caused by the parasites as well as diseases transmitted by the parasites.
Since the Bluetongue outbreak began in Europe in 2006, MSD Animal Health has also realized the importance of integrated control measures against this disease. MSD Animal Health can offer ectoparasite control against biting Culicoides midges, the vectors of BTV, and has developed a safe, specific vaccine against BTV serotype-8.
This website has been developed to provide information to farmers and veterinarians about ectoparasite control and an integrated approach to Bluetongue control. For more information on Bluetongue control see www.bluetongue-info.com.
