Abstract The recombinant Bm86-based tick vaccines have shown their efficacy for the control of cattle ticks, . Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus and . R. annulatus infestations. However, cattle ticks often co-exist with multi-host ticks such as . Hyalomma and . Amblyomma species, thus requiring the control of multiple tick infestations for cattle and other hosts. Vaccination trials using a . R. microplus recombinant Bm86-based vaccine were conducted in cattle and camels against . Hyalomma dromedarii and in cattle against . Amblyomma cajennense immature and adult ticks. The results showed an 89% reduction in the number of . H. dromedarii nymphs engorging on vaccinated cattle, and a further 32% reduction in the weight of the surviving adult ticks. In vaccinated camels, a reduction of 27% and 31% of tick engorgement and egg mass weight, respectively was shown, while egg hatching was reduced by 39%. However, cattle vaccination with Bm86 did not have an effect on . A. cajennense tick infestations. These results showed that Bm86 vaccines are effective against . R. microplus and other tick species but improved vaccines containing new antigens are required to control multiple tick infestations.
