Abstract: One hundred semi-systematized interviews were applied with the aim of surveying the perceptions of milk producers in the municipality of Divinópolis, Minas Gerais regarding the biology of the tick Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus. Content analysis was conducted on each of the variables surveyed and their descriptions, highlighting the higher frequencies in order to construct profiles of perceptions about each of the matters surveyed. In addition, each of the producers was categorized regarding their readine… Show more

“…Diante da pequena participação dos médicos veterinários como fonte de informação sobre os produtos e métodos de controle disponíveis para combate dos ectoparasitos (Fig.2), ressalta-se a necessidade de uma maior participação destes proϐissionais, bem como de instituições de pesquisa, cooperativas e associações ligadas ao setor, na divulgação dos programas de controle existentes e na capacitação dos trabalhadores rurais, para que se alcance sucesso na implantação de programas sanitários, conforme também observado por Santos Júnior et al (2000), Bello (2010) e Rocha et al (2006Rocha et al ( , 2011a.…”

“…Studies by Rocha et al (2006Rocha et al ( , 2011a surveyed the profile of perceptions and attitudes among milk producers in Passos and Divinópolis, Minas Gerais, and demonstrated that there was a lack of knowledge of tick biology and a lack of alternatives for achieving more rational control. Considering that the tick control practices are all considered to be "traditional", the present study had the objective of evaluating factors associated with improvement of these control practices against R.…”

“…) microplus has been sought through excessive use of chemical compounds (ROCHA et al, 2011b). Currently, information about the epidemiology of this tick species is not taken into consideration by farm owners when choosing treatments (ROCHA et al, 2011a), and this is likely to accelerate the development of parasite resistance GOMES et al, 2011;GUERRERO et al, 2012). In addition, new drug development is expensive and it is difficult to discover new molecules with satisfactory effectiveness (GRAF et al, 2004).…”
