Almost all known species reside in the New World. They are best known as vectors of Chagas disease, a disease caused by transmission of the blood parasite, Trypanosoma cruzi (T. cruzi), through their feces. This booklet discusses the biology of the bugs, their evolutionary history, their distribution in the United States, the risk they pose for transmission of T. cruzi to pets and other domestic animals, and the control of kissing bugs around human habitations21ocn150882670book19830.47Schmidt, Justin OInsect venoms11ocn610244920book20030.47United States-Israel Binational Agricultural Research and Development FundThe use of bee-borne attractants for pollination of non-rewarding flowers : model systems of male-sterile tomato plants11ocn003151355book19771.00Schmidt, Justin ODefensive strategies of wasps and ants : Dasymutilla occidentalis and Pogonomyrmex badius11ocn606192873book19721.00Schmidt, Justin OThe study of highly strained cyclopropyl adamantane compounds with emphasis on their radical copolymerizations with oxygenFri Mar 21 15:07:36 EDT 2014batch4444
