The capture of triatomines
in the peridomestic and intradomestic environment occurred actively (manual capture) and was carried out by endemic agents of the municipalities in household visits programmed or directly by residents of the homes studied.
Finamore-Araujo et al., "Development of conventional and real-time multiplex PCR-based assays for estimation of natural infection rates and Trypanosoma cruzi load in triatomine
vectors," Parasites & Vectors, vol.
This demonstrates that the survival capacity of triatomines
for long periods without food can be a defense mechanism against insecticides, and thus these insects protected themselves until the lethal doses .
The early identification of areas with greater (or significant) vulnerability to the occurrence of synanthropic triatomines
and transmission of human Chagas disease is fundamental for the design and application of efficient and economically viable intervention actions .
Further, this species is able to adapt and replace other triatomines
in the transmission of Chagas disease , besides being one of the most important species with potential to transmit Chagas disease in Texas, United States .
As identified by the Armed Forces Health Surveillance Center, our military personnel routinely acquire a wide range of VBDs spread through mosquitoes, ticks, triatomines
, and other arthropods.
Unfortunately, Reduviids are not common in Chilean collections, and there are few specimens around, mostly of Triatomines
Interactions between intestinal compounds of triatomines
and Trypanosoma cruzi.
Infestation of Mauritia flexuosa palms by triatomines
(Hemiptera: Reduviidae), vectors of Trypanosoma cruzi and Trypanosoma rangeli in the Brazilian savanna.
occurring in distinct locations are normally adapted to local conditions (4).
However, the triatomines
and their eggs were maintained in mesh-covered pots, preventing any spontaneous wasp-triatomine egg contact.
Characterization of Trypanosoma cruzi strains isolated from chronic chagasic patients, triatomines
and opossums naturally infected from the State of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.
