Survey Of Ticks Infesting Dogs Within Gadau Community

Research Questions

  1. What are the prevalence of tick infestations among dogs in the Gadau community, including variations based on factors such as age, sex, and breed?

  2. What are the species composition of ticks infesting dogs in the study area, including both known vectors of pathogens and novel species potentially emerging in the region?.

  3. What are the spatial distribution of tick infestations within the Gadau community, including variations based on environmental factors such as vegetation cover, land use patterns, and proximity to water bodies.?

Data Collection Methods


Data will be collected through structured surveys administered to dog owners or caretakers in the selected households. The surveys will include questions regarding dog demographics (e.g., age, sex, breed), housing conditions, outdoor activities, previous tick infestations, and preventive measures used by owners. Surveys will be conducted in the local language or dialect to ensure comprehension and cultural sensitivity, with trained enumerators facilitating data collection.

Tick Collection and Identification

Ticks will be collected from infested dogs using standardized sampling protocols, including visual inspection and manual removal techniques. Collected ticks will be stored in vials containing 70% ethanol for preservation and transported to the laboratory for species identification. Morphological and molecular techniques, such as microscopy and polymerase chain reaction (PCR), will be employed to identify tick species and assess pathogen presence.
