“…This suggests that transmission does not occur in these municipalities. However, this discontinuity of entomological surveillance, together with the presence of native species such as T. brasiliensis, T. pseudomaculata, and P. lutzi, which have a high index of natural infection by T. cruzi in DUs as reported by Barbosa-Silva et al 10 and Vargas et al 27 , suggest risk of transmission of the parasite to the rural population in Rio Grande do Norte; this risk is evidenced in a recent outbreak of oral transmission in the municipality of Marcelino Vieira 27 .…”

“…In this scenario, T. brasiliensis and T. pseudomaculata were the most frequently captured in DUs. Triatoma brasiliensis is the most frequently captured species in the intradomicile 9,10,22,28 . Studies in the states of Rio Grande do Norte 10 , Ceará [29][30][31] and Pernambuco 32,33 have demonstrated the predominance of these species in the peridomicile, thus corroborating our data.…”
