The Epidemiological Bulletin of the National Epidemiological Surveillance System, the Unified Information System, is the official means of disseminating the morbidity of the National Epidemiological Surveillance System (SINAVE) and represents one of the main substantive activities of the General Directorate of Epidemiology. This document dates from 1880, and has evolved at the same pace as the epidemiological surveillance system in Mexico.
The study from the University of Lausanne, Switzerland, suggests Florida carpenter ants can collectively influence their communities by shifting the cocktail of proteins, hormones and other small molecules that they pass mouth-to-mouth to one another and their young through a process called trophallaxis.
We’ve all experienced that twinge of dread when we notice increased bee activity near our homes, especially when we find them inside the house! Besides the fear of a bee sting, the weight of honeybee colonies and seeping honey, wax and waste can cause serious structural damage to a home. For these reasons, we want to remove bees that come a little too close for comfort. But it’s important to ensure that honey bees are removed in a way that doesn’t harm them — and you don’t even have to be an animal or nature lover to understand why.
Some biting pests such as mosquitoes, fleas and ticks are most active during the warmer months. Others, like bed bugs, are active year round but become a larger concern with increased summer travel. Mosquitoes, fleas, ticks and bed bugs don’t bite out of self-defense. No, they’re biting you to get their next blood meal. And, while some biting insects merely cause itchy welts on the skin, others pose more serious health threats. Use this guide to learn everything there is to know about common biting pests.
In the past, pest management in museums and other collection holding institutions often involved regular applications of toxic chemicals to collection areas and actual collections. Health and safety concerns have led institutions to move away from this approach in favor of preventive and protective measures that are not based on chemicals. This strategy involves numerous measures used in combination and is commonly termed “integrated pest management” or IPM.
A few months ago I was before a moment of those that change your life, without thinking, or planning everything that gave me stability changed, I left my comfort zone abruptly and this triggered a number of emotions and very varied feelings: surprise, anger, frustration, disappointment, fear and the loss of what until then he believed was a life status.
The research, reported in the journal Science Advances, combines advanced genetic and statistical analyses to show how certain genetic and behavioral qualities in disease-carrying insects, like mosquitoes, make these species resistant to genetic manipulation.
