Temperatures of 4 and 10 degrees C reduced the rate of hatching of eggs and the development of the pre-infective stages of T. colubriformis and T. rugatus, but not T. vitrinus. Eggs of T. rugatus hatched at 4 degrees C, but did not develop to the infective stage. At 20 and 30 degrees C, no differences were detected between species in egg hatching or the development of infective larvae. Third-stage larvae of T. rugatus survived for significantly longer periods of time at 33 and 56% relative… CONTINUE READING
