“…Mealworms intoxicated with capsaicin or capsazepine responded similarly to mammals (in mealworms, capsaicin induced preference for lower temperatures, while capsazepine for higher temperatures). Similar findings were recently published by Zermoglio et al [ 48 ] and showed that Rhodnius prolixus treated with capsaicin is less responsive to heat stimuli, fails to orient in space, and prefers lower temperatures than non-treated insects, while capsazepine induced opposite behaviors.…”

“…The similarity in the responses of insects and mammals indicates that capsaicin may infl uence structures that are at least functionally similar to mammalian TRPV1 (Olszewska & Tęgowska, 2011). Similar results are reported by Zermoglio et al (2015), which show that 27.6°C for females; ANOVA: F 1.10 = 0.43, P > 0.05). Based on this result, we determined the time spent by insects in the temperature gradient in areas with temperatures above 27°C in all experimental series (Fig.…”

“…A recent study suggested that a TRP belonging to vanilloid receptors family (TRPVs) could be involved in the high sensitivity to heat in R . prolixus which uses these capacities to perceive warm-blooded hosts [97]. In T .…”
