In the Ninth and Tenth Reports of the Director of Veterinary Education and Research (1924), an article by Dr. P.J. du Toit appeared under the title ""Sheep Scab: The infectivity of kraals"". The experiments recorded in that article seemed to prove conclusively that a kraal grossly infected with scab parasites (Psoroptes ovis), if kept free of sheep for a period of seventeen days, will not infect clean sheep.
