This study aimed to investigate the in vitro acaricidal effect of thymol, carvacrol and eugenol (binary combinations) and their synergistic effect on unfed larvae and nymphs of Amblyomma sculptum, estimate the cost to prepare a formulation with these compounds, and evaluate the formulations under semi-field conditions against A. sculptum larvae. To evaluate the acaricidal effect of the compounds alone or their binary combinations (1:1 ratio) the larval packet test was performed using six concentrations (0. Read More
