Los dipteros hematofagos como Stomoxys calcitrans, ocho especies de Tabanus sp, tres especies de Culicidae (11) y Haematobia irritans (3) actuan como transmisores de A.
Bovine anaplasmosis is an economically important infectious but non-contagious vector-borne disease generally transmitted by ticks (Rhipicephalus spp., Boophilus spp., Hyalomma spp.) and mechanically by biting flies (Tabanus spp.) or blood contaminated fomites.
Transmission occurs mainly through mechanical vectors (Tabanus spp., Hybomitra spp., and Stomoxys spp.) and by iatrogenic routes, such as syringes, needles, and surgical equipment (ISSEL & FOIL, 2015).

From Diptera, six species from Syrphidae (Eristalis tenax, Eupeodes corollae, Melanostoma sp., Ischniodon scutellaris, Episyrphus balteatus, Eristalis smilis), two from Calliphoridae (Stomorpgina discolor, Chrysomya megacephala) one species each from Sarcophagidae (Sarcophaga sp.), Muscidae (Musca domestica), Tabanidae (Tabanus suleifrons) and Tachnidae (Prosena siberita) were recorded.
Estos microorganismos se encuentran ampliamente distribuidos en todo el mundo y sus principales vectores son las moscas (Haematobiairritans, Stomoxyscalcitrans, Tabanus spp.), garrapatas (Rhiphicephalus (Boophilus) microplus, Amblyomma cajennense) y otros artropodos hematofagos que tambien son cosmopolitas.
