Synthetic acaricides pose problems of resistance, environmental issues, public health problems and institutional dependence. Herbal medications offer viable alternatives for tick control. We conducted on farm trials on 87 animals and tested crude extracts of plants locally available in the region. The technological know-how was shared by National Innovation Foundation in its earlier limited trials with DGCN College of Veterinary & Animal Sciences, Palampur, Himachal Pradesh. The present study done on a larger scale evaluated effectiveness of herbal technology. The herbal medication had provided relief and showed 40.30 percent efficacy by 24 hours, 81.62 by 48 hours and 89.15 by 72 hours of topical application. This low cost technology based on locally available plants must be propagated for wider dissemination by stakeholders.
