Correlation of habitat, environment and color of chiggers, and their potential significance in the epidemiology of scrub typhus in Malaya (Prostigmata: Trombiculidae)



Correlation of habitat, environment and color of chiggers, and their potential significance in the epidemiology of scrub typhus in Malaya (Prostigmata: Trombiculidae)



Journal of Medical Entomology 7(2): 131-144



The following is based largely on the author's abstract. Mites of the family Trombiculidae are parasitic in the larval stage; the nymphs and adults are non-parasitic. Only certain species transmit the agent of scrub typhus (Rickettsia orientalis) to man. From the viewpoint of epidemiology, the critical phase in the life-history of a Trombiculid mite is the unfed larva, prior to attachment to a host, which could be either a bird, reptile, or mammal, including man.
