Subject:  Acaricides/Repellents for ticks on horses

I am trying to locate technical information on registered acaricides for ticks on horses, especially any with repellent activity. The following are currently regist ered for use on horses in Australia, and may or may not have effects against ticks: Asuntol, Baricade "S", Bayticol and a carbaryl-based dry shampoo, Permoxin (permethrin).
The target tick species we are interested in are Boophilus microplus, Rhipicephalus sanguineus, Ixodes holocyclus, and Haemaphysalis longicornis (all indigenous australian ticks) and a range of exotic ticks which act as vectors for equine piroplasmosis and might be introduced into Australia.

Any information on current sources would be appreciated.
Thank you

Hello, to all of you!

I want to get in contact with a (former?) member of the acarology list, Dr Stephen Martin. Does anyone know his e-mail address (or possibly his "snail-mail" address)? The present address I have is but it has "permanent fatal errors: User unknown" according to my server.

I would be very pleased if anyone could help me!
