Abstract: Aim The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that the dispersal of sylvatic triatomines to anthropic habitats is stimulated by degradation of their natural habitat.Location State of Espírito Santo, south-eastern Brazil.Methods We georeferenced records of domiciliary captures of sylvatic triatomines (1996)(1997)(1998)(1999)(2000)(2001)(2002)(2003)(2004)(2005) obtained from the database of the entomological surveillance programme of the Brazilian National Health Foundation. We partitioned the study area … Show more

“…Areas with steep slopes have dimples, which allow a greater variability of water and organic matter accumulation, as well as a reduction in sunlight and wind exposure, thereby creating a greater diversity of habitats; this diversity in habitats contributes to the maintenance of food and shelter conditions for these insects [33]. …”

“…Other studies have shown temperature to be an important determinant of the distribution of triatomines on a regional or continental scale (Gorla 2002, Rodriguero & Gorla 2004, Batista & Gurgel-Gonçalves 2009, Gurgel-Gonçalves & Silva 2009, Gurgel-Gonçalves et al 2011). However, other environmental variables, such as the slope of the terrain (Leite et al 2011) and humidity (Arboleda et al 2009), have also been identified as principal determinants of the occurrence of certain species.…”

“…The vectors are blood-sucking reduviid bugs of the subfamily Triatominae, of which 70 of the over 140 Triatominae species described [3], [4] have been found to be naturally infected with T. cruzi [5]. Originally restricted to sylvatic habitats, Chagas disease began to present a risk to human health as its vectors acquired the ability to colonize and sustain populations in human dwellings, resulting in the domiciliary transmission of T. cruzi [6].…”
