EOW CATTLE TICKS
SPREAD TEXAS FEVER.
By ExterminatiAg the Ticks the Dis
ease Can be Stamped Out and
the Quarantine Removed.
The mieroseopie parasite which
causes the disease known as Texas
fever or tick fever of cattle is found
in the blood of affected animals and
is transferred from one to another by
eans of the fever tick. A remarkable
eature of this transaction is that the
sease-producing parasites are trans
.tLed throu'i the eggs of the tick

The length of time elapsing be

fter the premises have been infested
ith ticks from southern cattle. Texas
ever may occur in from thirty to
$ixty days, as the female ticks which
drop from southern cattle must lay
eggs and these must hatdh before the
rnorthern animal becomes infested
with ticks and thereby inoculated
with the disease. After the seed ticks
become attached to the animal the
disease will appear in about ten days
in summer or a somewhat longer pe
T;od in winter. In fact, the disease
may occur before the ticks are large
enough to be seen without a very
One objection that has been ad
vanced against the fact that the cat
t7e tick is a carrier of Texas fever is
that cattle are sometimes found to be
suffering with the disease without
showing the presenee of ticks on their
bodies. This condition in the case of
southern cattle may be explained by
the fact that the animal already had
its blood infected witlh the parasites
and under normal conditions was re
sistant to Texas fever; however, as a
result of lowered vitality caused by
some other disease, or by exposure,
privation, injury, rough handling.
etc., this resistance has been .reduceda
and finally overcome, and the para
sites at last succeed in producing the
disease. On the other hand, when this
disease is observed in northern ani
mals, the young seed ticks may be so
small and so few in imber as to be
Under eertain conditions. as when
living on horses. mules. etc., tihe ticks
lose their infectiousness, and when
southern cattle not previously infest
ed with any but these non-infectious
iceks once come in contact with infee
tious ticks they are just as susceptible
as cattle raised on tick-free pastur2s.
Many cattle appear perfectly
healthy and yet are infested with
ticks and have the fever parasite in
their blood. Sometimes the owners
cannot understand wih such animals
should be regarded as dangerous to
others, and .consider it unjust that
ther should be subjected to quaran
ine restrie-tions. The fact is that
such cat tle have usually contracted1
the disease in a very mild form at an
early age and have becomie immune
to. furtiher attacks. although still car

arasites in their blood may be trans

While the disease may be produced
a rineialy by inoculating a suscept
ible animal with the blood of an in
feted one, it is spread naturally only
by -the ticks. By exterminating the
ticks, therefore, the disease can be
stamped out, and tihe quarantine can
then be removed.
