Abstract

Unfed nymphs of Amblyomma hebraeum Koch, 1844 shelter under debris on the soil surface and become active in host-seeking when stimulated with carbon dioxide. The active nymphs are not attracted to sources of carbon dioxide and hence cannot be effectively sampled using static carbon dioxide traps. However, these nymphs will cling to flannelette and can be sampled by flagging. Larger numbers are recovered if the soil surface is sampled using a vacuum device.
