Species of Anopheles which are pathogenic to cattle include:
- Anopheles arabiensis (Africa)
- Anopheles sinensis (China)
- Anopheles minimus (Asia)
- Anopheles albimanus
- Anopheles pseudopunctipennis
- Anopheles punctimacula (South America) 
These mosquitoes are primarily a 'worry' to cattle, causing skin rashes, but may also transmit arboviruses such as Rift Valley fever and Tahyna virus. The mosquito has a predilection for moist environments and is commonly found near farms, on fecal material and cow urine.
Treatment is relatively effective with most insecticides, although resistance to older chemicals is common. The use of avermectin-based drugs has proven effective at population control of this insect in cattle herds.
