From these studies it may be concluded that it is highly probable that there are at least two generations per year of the tropical cattle tick in Northeastern Thailand, depending upon the climatic conditions and availability of the host. In areas where hosts are numerous, it is possible that there are 4 or 5 generations per year. Because of the potential reproduction ability of the adult female tropical cattle tick, the durability of the unfed seed tick, and the inadequate control measures now available, increased cattle production in the Northeast could be seriously hampered. Studies will be continued on the biology and ecology of the tropical cattle tick in order to help develop more economical and permanent control measures.
