Table 1 Mortality assessment of adult Ixodes ricinus and Ixodes scapularis ticks exposed for 1 and 2 h to dog hair treated with dinotefuran-permethrin-pyriproxyfen or not treated

From: Vectra 3D (dinotefuran, pyriproxyfen and permethrin) prevents acquisition of Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto by Ixodes ricinus and Ixodes scapularis ticks in an ex vivo feeding model
