Humans, travel and arthropods: the problem of disease transmission



Humans, travel and arthropods: the problem of disease transmission



International Pest Control 24(4): 93-94



Information published recently by the World Health Organization in a booklet for travellers on the risks of infection arising from the bites of invertebrates (mainly arthropods) is summarised. Vectors (mosquitoes, phlebotomine sandflies, ceratopogonids, simuliids and ticks) are listed, together with the types of pathogens they transmit, the diseases caused by the pathogens and the main areas in the world in which such transmission can occur.
