From: Repellency, prevention of attachment and acaricidal efficacy of a new combination of fipronil and permethrin against the main vector of canine babesiosis in Europe, Dermacentor reticulatus ticks

  Untreated control group number of ticks in the crate (percent out of the total number of ticks) Treated group number of ticks in the crate (percent out of the total number of ticks)
