Abstract A study of diseases and parasites of pigs in the Solomon Islands during 1967 to 1969 indicated that infectious diseases were of little consequence. Four arthropod parasite species were found: one tick, one louse and two tabanids. The tick (Amblyomma cyprium cyprium) was extremely rare. Fifteen species of helminth parasites were recorded and of these Stephanurus dentatus was the most prevalent. All species were identified except a filariid, of which only the microfilariae were seen.
