Abstract:
Ticks are blood-sucking ectoparasites, a significant impediment to the dairy sector and implicated in diseases such as Babesiosis, Theileriosis, Anaplasmosis, etc., and deteriorate animal’s health associated with welfare issues which have a drastic impact on the dairy farm economy and livestock productivity. Researchers's understanding of possible health threats and environmental damage caused by the excessive use of synthetic acaricides stirred the need to adopt an alternative approach in controlling the tick infestation. As a biodiverse country, India has a diverse group of medicinal herbs that can be used as a safe, effective alternative to chemical acaricides against cattle ticks. Identifying the acaricidal properties of herbal plants and their specific active components can help reduce pollution and the spread of resistance among target tick populations. The use of the herbal formulation as a tick control measure discussed in the review certainly impacts future livestock production. This article reviewed the current prevalence of tick population and infestation rate in dairy animals across the country, the variables that cause it, and their impact on animal health and production. In addition, this article includes thorough information about herbal treatments and formulations that may be used to control ticks.
