Effect of age of the intermediate host Tribolium confusum on infection by Hymenolepis diminuta



Effect of age of the intermediate host Tribolium confusum on infection by Hymenolepis diminuta



Journal Of Parasitology: 1, 152-157. Ef



A cross-sectional study of 27 cohorts of <i>Tribolium confusum</i> aged 2-78 wk was done to examine effects of host age on exposure to eggs of <i>Hymenolepis diminuta</i> under standardized conditions. Pre-exposure, fasting, and postexposure mortality were low, sex ratio was equal, and fecundity of hosts was high during the first 30 wk, followed by increasing mortality and male bias of the sex ratio, and declining fecundity, in older beetles.
