“…Triatomines, also known as conenose bugs, kissing bugs, or assassin bugs, are insects found throughout the Americas, distributed from the Southern part of the United States of America to Southern Argentina (1) . These insects are of great importance to public health as they are involved in transmission of South American trypanosomiasis, also called Chagas' disease (2) in honor of Carlos Chagas who fi rst described this disease in 1909 (1) (3) (4) .…”
