Depending on the species and the region they can survive for months in the environment and some may survive cold winters, but they are very sensitive to dessication.

One gene, cox3was predicted to end with an incomplete termination codon, as identified in the cox3 of A. The complete mitochondrial genome of Anoplocephala perfoliatathe first representative for the family Anoplocephalidae.

A fecal float can diagnose the presence of an infection however they may not always be present in a sample, especially if the host has a light infection. The use of insecticides for this purpose is not advisable, because it is more expensive than the potential economic loss due to the infections, and because anoplocepphala detrimental effect on the environment: The sequence difference in NC1 between the 2 species was Equine tapeworm infections are caused by species of the family Anoplocephalidae in the order Cyclophyllidea.
