Since its first appearance in 2017 on the east coast of the USA, the Asian long-distance ticket has continued to attack new areas and has reached New York's state. A new investigation is warning, because this parable has the ability to get apart, that the disease is more than had been thought previously.
The long-array revenge detected in 2017 on the east coast of the USA is rapidly spreading. /
Long horns with horns (Haemaphysalis longicornisare indigenous to the mixed parts of eastern and central Asia, including China, Korea and Japan, as well as some of Pacific islands such as Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Hawaii. t In August 2018, the City of New York Health Department announced that the first sample of species found in the Staten Island area had been found, although some previous years had been found in other parts of the east coast.
New survey, published in the journal Arising diseases come to lightnow revealing that the population of this unknown population, thought to be aggressive pests, is potentially dangerous, than was previously thought on Staten Island. The reason is that this reason, which is usually found in the grass where deer are grazing, has been able to reduce in large size.
“The real challenge is the ability to broadcast human diseases and make people sick,” explains the researcher Maria Diuk-Wasser, associate professor of the Department of Ecology, Evolution. and Environmental Biology at the University of Columbia (SA).
US scientists have made the most widely known local census to date on this species and in 2017 were struck out in seven of the 13 analyzed parks. By 2018, the parasite was present in 16 of its 32 parks. In one, the density of slopes per square meter per annum increased by 1,698% between 2017 and 2018, since the number of samples collected had increased from 85 to 1,529.
A tick that symbolizes itself
When a first sight of this species was seen in New York, the experts lifted a warning to try and stop the spread of the barrier, and its main feature is its ability to be able to re-spread the species. was fast track. Under some environmental conditions, the female can commit herself to suicide. But he also has the ability to reproduce sexually, between 1,000 and 2,000 eggs at a time.
"With such a large number in Staten's population, this controls this species very difficult," said Meredith VanAcker, a member of the Diuk-Wasser laboratory which formed data into it. doctoral dissertation. “As women don't have to find male males for reproduction, it is easier for the population to spread,” he explains.
The threat to people's health remains, however, unknown. In Asia, there have been reports of trout that give out squirrels that can cause a number of diseases, such as hemorrhagic fever and ehrlichiosis, bacterial pathology which may adversely affect influenza and serious problems. if not treated.
