Cattle scabies is caused by Psoroptes ovis (Hering), and Hereford cattle with a history of psoroptic scabies were as susceptible after reexposure to P. ovis as cattle exposed for the first time. The first reexposure of cattle to P. ovis after a 5-month latency period failed to cause psoroptic scabies. But a second reexposure resulted in body scab as extensive as that on naive cattle. Cattle free of P. ovis infestation for 4 months after toxaphene treatment developed scabies with as many mites as cattle exposed for the first time. Two cattle had severe scabies with many mites only while stanchioned and unable to groom. The data indicate that cattle after a 2- to 5-month period of latency or recovery from scabies because of pesticide treatment are as susceptible to P. ovis as cattle exposed for the first time. Self grooming behavior was the only factor which consistently limited the size of P. ovis populations.
