Attention! There is an Ordinary Insect but most dangerous
Such insects may look sweet and innocent, but only that it is not. These small creatures actually act parasitically and
sometimes fatal, since they help the spread of Chagas virus in animals and humans. More and more people in South America and the US are confronted with this rare parasitic infection and is now estimated that more than 300,000 people are infected with the virus in the US alone. In Texas, about 400 dogs have died of this virus, as it is more susceptible to this virus.
Usually they bite people when sleeping, close the eyes and mouth, as feed on blood. Then, when their faeces come into
contact with the bite or the eye, transfer the Trypanosoma cruzi parasite victim.
The parasite thus spread more and more. Besides this, the dogs can stick this disease and eating insect or feces of infected
The Chagas virus is not only distasteful to how transmitted, but also how that affects its victims. Most often the disease has
no symptoms until it has reached another stage and suddenly makes his appearance from nowhere.

-synchysi and weakness
-Lack of coordination
-kriseis or volatility movements
-katathlipsi, lethargy – palpitations – heart failure

in the early stages of the disease, it is quite easy to treat, otherwise things are very difficult.
