Blood Feeders

    Blood feeding arthropods are of great concern to the public, not only because of their annoying and often painful bites, but most importantly because many are carriers of pathogens which cause diseases affecting humans and domestic animals. For example, ticks can carry Rocky Mountain spotted fever, encephalitis, tularemia, Lyme disease, etc. Mosquitoes can carry West Nile virus, malaria, encephalitis, yellow fever, etc. Fleas can carry bubonic plague, murine typhus, and can transmit tapeworms.
