Abstract: Introduction: Studying the feeding preferences of triatomines is an important entomological surveillance tool, since continuous surveillance of the disease is necessary. Methods: The precipitin reaction was used to describe the feeding preferences of triatomines along with their natural infection by flagellates similar to Tyrpanosoma cruzi. Six hundred eighty-seven insects were examined, including Triatoma brasiliensis, Triatoma pseudomaculata, and Panstrongylus lutzi. Results: Sixty-nine (10%) of 687 triatomi… Show more

“…Existem fatores que podem favorecer a disseminação da doença de Chagas, como a baixa situação socioeconômica, que se reflete nas péssimas condições das habitações humanas, e a ocorrência de espécies de triatomíneos com importante potencial de domiciliação e capacidade vetorial 11,12,13 . Geralmente os domicílios são construídos de forma precária: paredes de pau a pique, barreadas e com telhado de sapé, tábuas de madeira e alvenaria sem reboco, facilitando a adaptação dos insetos a esses habitats artificiais 14 .…”

“…In the wild, R. neglectus feeds on palm‐dwelling vertebrates including birds, opossums, rodents and bats (Carcavallo et al ., ); 64.3% of the 28 R. neglectus studied in this work had fed on human blood. Finally, T. pseudomaculata feeds on a wide variety of vertebrates, including humans, chickens, rodents, dogs, pigs, opossums and lizards (Silva et al ., ). Triatoma pseudomaculata infests rural and urban/suburban dwellings, and often carries T. cruzi , both in the semi‐arid Caatinga of northeastern Brazil and in the eastern half of the Cerrado (e.g.…”

“…Several approaches have been used to determine bloodmeal sources in triatomines, including immunological tests (Silva et al ., ), polymerase chain reaction (PCR)‐based methods (Peña et al ., ; Georgieva et al ., ) and mass spectrometry (Keller et al ., ). High‐resolution melting (HRM) is a post‐PCR analysis that detects small variations in nucleic acid sequences based on the temperature‐dependent dissociation (melting) behaviour of double‐stranded DNA treated with a fluorescent dye.…”
