Dear all,

I am new here and I was wondering whether there are related 'spirits' in the 
net. I am studying the host finding behavior of a South American bug called 
Triatoma infestans (Hemiptera: Triatominae). The insect is an important vector 
of Chagas' disease, a relative of the sleeping sickness. So far, I looked into 
attractive odors, but I want to be more general in the future, and want to 
learn about the role of other stimuli as well. I would be interested to 
exchange views and knowledge with people studying similar topics in arthropod 
pests and disease vectors. I am especially interested in the application of 
this research in their biological control, as well as the biological control 
of parasites in general. And because I need a break from all those mammalian 
host odors every once and a while, I am also interested the application of 
essential oils from aromatic plants (not only) in pest and parasite control.
