They are hematophagous , meaning they feed on the blood of their host. Nearly all personal pests can be transmitted to an uninfected host with prolonged exposure to an infected host.
Lice, fleas, bedbugs, and ticks are known as ectoparasites. Ectoparasites live on the skin of their host. They have adaptations that allow them to access the nutrients inside of the host, such as methods to penetrate skin, insert digestive enzymes and a gut microbiome that can digest the nutrients received from the host. It is also suspected that bedbugs may also be vectors of hepatitis B.
The mite that causes scabies, Sarcoptes scabei also known as the itch mite, burrows into the skin of its host making it an endoparasite. The Housefly[ edit ] The housefly is a very common and cosmopolitan species which transmits diseases to man.
The organisms of both amoebic and bacillary dysenteries are picked up by flies from the faeces of infected people and transferred to clean food either on the fly's hairs or by the fly vomiting during feeding. Typhoid germs may be deposited on food with the fly's faeces. The house fly cause the spread of yaws germs by carrying them from a yaws ulcer to an ordinary sore.Dipping in and out of the twenty chapters like an insectivorous bird, I compiled the following assortment of new snippets of information which Mike has added to the book.
Briley, D. Family Culicidae, Subfamily Culicinae.
On a less optimistic note, the organophosphate Temephos used for Aedes control and considered safe for ingestion is now under suspicion of toxigenic and mutagenic effects.
