Average values of tick weight (A) and weight of eggs laid by an individual tick (B) measured at the beginning and at week 27 of the experiment. After vaccination, these variables showed a statistically significant reduction in the three schemes assayed (indicated with an asterisk at week 27), according to a Mann-Whitney's test with p < 0.05. Mean values measured from ticks engorged on unvaccinated animals did not show a significant variation. Standard deviation bars in the positive sense are indicated.
