Abstract
In the laboratory for 1 generation. Larvae and nymphs were fed on rabbits and adults were fed on T. m1dans-free cattle. Egg-laying females, hatching eggs and engorged immature instars were maintained at 28 °0 and 80% relative humidity (reI. hum.) while unfed stages were kept at approximately 20 °0 and 80 % reI. hum. To confirm that the laboratory colony was not harbouring T. rnutans or other infections, large numbers of larvae, nymphs and adult stages were applied to 2 T. rnutans-free cattle without resultant infection. These cattle were challenged with T. rnutans later and found to be susceptible.
