Estimation of the Theileria parva entomological inoculation rate (EIR) by means of tick burden and proportion of infected questing ticks in three different farming systems in Rwanda
A field study was carried out to determine the patterns of transmission of Theileria parvainfection (expressed as entomological inoculation rate (EIR)) between cattle and T. parvainfected Rhipicephalus appendiculatus ticks in three different farming systems in Rwanda. The EIR was measured for a given period of time as a product of the tick burden feeding on an animal and the proportion of...
