Varieties of insect pests
Parasites differ from symbioses complete opposite – they simply kill the host organism that gives them life. Why are so arranged by nature – it is not clear, apparently the management of populations.
Parasites worsen the overall health of the animal, can also transfer infectious disease.
Conditionally they can be divided into 2 types – ectoparasites and endoparasites. The first live inside the body (worms, larvae), developing before the end of a cycle, the latter only injure the skin surface (blood-sucking). Ectoparasites in some sense more enjoyable drank blood and flew (as a rule, it is a female, and the blood is not them, and for posterity), but endoparasites can live a month and two under the animal’s skin and in internal organs like stomach and colon. The larvae of the gadfly even prefer to spend under the skin of the host throughout the winter.
Fight can razdelitvene two fronts – the destruction of insects on animals and the processing of the adjacent territory. The first task for the master himself, but to disinfect the apartment and / or the infield will require professional assistance .
