Laboratory evaluation of propoxur and fenvalerate against infected and noninfected Leptotrombidium fletcheri (Acari: Trombiculidae)

Southeast Asian Journal of Tropical Medicine and Public Health 24(3): 570-572

Laboratory evaluation of propoxur and fenvalerate against infected and noninfected Leptotrombidium fletcheri (Acari: Trombiculidae)

Propoxur was more toxic to L. fletcheri than fenvalerate whether the chiggers were infected with Rickettsia tsutsugamushi or not, but the LC99 of infected L. fletcheri was 1-fold higher than that of uninfected ones when only tested with propoxur.

Leptotrombidium (Leptotrombidium) fletcheri (Womersley & Heaslip), whether naturally infected with Rickettsia tsutsugamushi (Nagayo et al.) or from a R. tsutsugamushi-free colony, failed to acquire or transmit Ehrlichia sennetsu (Misao & Kobayashi...

We developed a method for detecting and characterizing the DNA of Rickettsia tsutsugamushi in chiggers (larval trombiculid mites) by polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Three procedures for extracting DNA from frozen chiggers were compared by evaluat...
