Previous work showed that in the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico, houses are transiently infested by adult Triatoma dimidiata, which then fail to establish sustained colonies. The present study was designed to evaluate the seasonality and possible causes of the dispersal of sylvatic T. dimidiata toward the houses and the subsequent failure of colonization… CONTINUE READING
