Examinations of local beetles as experimental transit-hosts of Trichinella spiralis (Owen 1835)


, : Examinations of local beetles as experimental transit-hosts of Trichinella spiralis (Owen 1835). Zoologischer Anzeiger 194(3/4): 180-192

In the laboratory, 51 species of beetles (silphids, histerids, scarabaeids, staphylinids and carabids) were offered meat infested with Trichinella spiralis. Thirty-two species of carabids, of 10 genera, subsequently were found to have larvae of T. spiralis in the gut. No larvae were found in the other species. The beetles that ingested larvae whole were those without a marked bristle apparatus on the mandibles.
