Abstract

Studies on the feeding habits and intestinal content of sandflies make it possible to identify hosts, thereby indicating potential reservoirs for Leishmania. The present study had the aim of determining the feeding preferences of Lutzomyia longipalpis and its relationship with the transmission of...

Abstract

The feeding preferences of 4 triatomine species (Triatoma infestans, Panstrongylus megistus, P. tupynambai and T. rubrovaria) collected in domiciliary, peridomiciliary and sylvatic environments in Rio Grande do Sul State, Brazil, were assessed. T. infestans fed on 10 food sources (rodent, bird,...

Abstract

A total of 459 specimens of T. sordida collected in the peridomiciliary environment and inside houses was studied using the precipitin technique. 87 bugs were from the Municipality of Damianopolis, 22 from Posse, and 350 from Aciara. An eclectic feeding behaviour was observed, with a high incidence ...
