Application of acaricides to beef cattle at 10-day intervals between late March and early July 1980 resulted in an 86.7 and 84.3% reduction, respectively, in populations of parasitic and free-living larvae of Amblyomma americanum (L.) during August and September 1980. Numbers of nymphs in August and September 1980 were reduced 72.7% (parasitic) and 95.6% (free living) as a result of the treatment regimen, whereas the numbers of parsitic and free living adults in spring 1981 were reduced 46.2 and 80.7%, respectively.
