    Notes: Abstract Three different tick control policies were tested in groups oftraditionally managed Sanga cattle in the Central Province of Zambia over aperiod of 3 years. One group was given strategic tick control using 12pyrethroid acaricide spray applications between the onset and the end of thewet season (October to March). The productivity of this herd was comparedwith that of a group with no tick control and a group under an intensivetick control regimen of spraying every week in the wet season and every2 weeks in the dry season (36 applications per year). The highest outputwas associated with intensive tick control, followed by strategic controland then no tick control policies. However, when the costs of tick controlwere taken into account, the strategic tick control policy produced thebest economic result, followed by the intensive and then the no tick controlpolicies. Neither the strategic nor the intensive tick control policywas sufficient to prevent the transmission of East Coast fever (ECF)infection when this disease was introduced to the area.
