In an effort to reduce the dependence on chemicals to which ticks are becoming increasingly resistant, this work was carried out to determine if a homeopathic medicine made from the tick can provide a viable alternative. 27 tick-infested cattle were divided into 3 groups. One group received no treatment, the next received the normal dose of Amitraz (a chemical based tick dip) and the third group received a 12C potency of Boophilus microplus. When compared to the control, the dip and the 12C homoeopathic potency provided the same level of reduction in ticks.
