The role of the soil fauna in the epizootiology of the pig ascaridosis. I. The dung beetle Geotrupes stercorarius L. as a reserve host of Ascaris suum Goeze, 1782



The role of the soil fauna in the epizootiology of the pig ascaridosis. I. The dung beetle Geotrupes stercorarius L. as a reserve host of Ascaris suum Goeze, 1782



Acta Parasitologica Polonica 20(12/25): 165-172



Of 525 Geotrupes stercorarius collected from areas in Poland frequented by wild boars and domestic pigs, 38.6% were infected with Ascaris suum larvae, compared with only 3.6% of 550 collected from areas not frequented by the suid hosts. Infective A. suum eggs, given orally, hatched in the intestine of G. stercorarius after 24 to 48 hours. 97% of the eggs hatched in males but only 50% in females. After 10 days of migration in the beetle, larvae settled in the gonads, fat-body or muscles.
