Vital Statistics of Synthesiomyia nudiseta (Diptera: Muscidae)
In a laboratory experiment, the life cycle and population parameters of Synthesiomyia nudiseta (Wulp) were studied under 2 constant temperatures. The average durations of the egg, larval, pupal,Expand

Ecological patterns of blood-feeding by kissing-bugs (Hemiptera: Reduviidae: Triatominae).
Host use by vectors is important in understanding the transmission of zoonotic diseases, which can affect humans, wildlife and domestic animals. Here, a synthesis of host exploitation patterns byExpand

Chagas' disease: an ecological appraisal with special emphasis on its insect vectors.
The enormous amount of literature on Chagas' disease makes it almost impossible to present a review of all its aspects, a task that would require the collaboration of numerous specialists. ThisExpand

Re-infestation of houses by Triatoma dimidiata after intra-domicile insecticide application in the Yucatán peninsula, Mexico.
In most countries, Chagas disease transmission control remains based on domestic insecticide application. We thus evaluated the efficacy of intra-domicile cyfluthrin spraying for the control ofExpand

Domiciliary biting frequency and blood ingestion of the Chagas's disease vector Rhodnius prolixus Ståhl (Hemiptera: Reduviidae), in Venezuela.
Demolition of a rural house in the State of Cojedes, Venezuela, provided a collection of 7.934 Rhodnius prolixus of which a random sample of 1,415 was weighed within 48 hours. The field weights,Expand

Probability of transmission of Chagas disease by Triatoma infestans (Hemiptera: Reduviidae) in an endemic area of Santiago del Estero, Argentina.
The daily probability (P) of transmission of Trypanosoma cruzi to a noninfected human host by an infected Triatoma infestans bug was estimated using field data from a 2-year longitudinal studyExpand

A population-dynamics simulation model of the main vectors of Chagas' Disease transmission, Thodnius prolixus and Triatoma infestans
A simulation model was developed to represent the population dynamics of two bugs (Triatoma infestans and Rhodnius prolixus), which are the main vector species of Chagas' Disease in some LatinExpand
