The study of arthropods
Subphylum of the arthropods that includes the mites, ticks, spiders, and scorpions that possess chelicerae mouthparts.
Subphylum of the arthropods that possesses mandibulate mouthparts
Members of the subphylum Mandibulata, Class Crustacea. The members include the aquatic arthropods: crab, lobster, crayfish, and copepods.
The centipedes and millipedes
Members of the phylum Arthropoda, subphylum Mandibulata, class Insecta
Members of the class Insecta, Includes cockroaches and grasshoppers
Members of the class Insecta, these are the beetles
Toxic or blistering compound found in a certain group of beetles; often referred to as Spanish Fly but has not aphrodisiac effect.
Members of the class Insecta, these are moths and butterflies. Have two life cycle stages- the adult stage and the larval, or caterpillar stage.
Members of the class Insecta, these are ants (fire ants), bees, wasps, yellow jackets, and other stinging insects.
make frequent visits to the host to obtain a blood meal
Members of the class Insecta, includes sucking lice
Members of the class Insecta, includes chewing lice
Egg of a sucking or chewing louse
objects or materials that are likely to carry infection, such as clothes, utensils, and furniture.
Infestation by either chewing or sucking lice
Infection or infestation of the tissues or organs of humans or domesticated or wild animals by larval members (maggots) of the order Diptera (two winged flies)
Appendages found near the mouth in invertebrate organisms that are used for sensation, locomotion, and/or feeding
Possessing veins in a part of the body, an arrangement or system of veins (as in the tissue of a leaf or the wing of an insect)
Living with humans
A periodic parasite that feeds on mucus, tears and saliva
winged dipterans that parasitize wild birds
Condition resulting from fly larvae, normally free living, that become parasitic and use host for their development
Lesions caused by fly larvae that require a vertebrate host for their development
Lesions produced in the tissues of vertebrate host by maggots or fly larvae
opening on the posterior end of some arthropod larvae used for breathing
Larvae of dipteran flies found in the skin of domestic or wild animals, producing cutaneous myiasis
Action of a vertebrate host marked by running away from irritating flies
Infestations with fleas
Partially digested blood defecated by fleas
stalks at the tip of sarcoptiform mite legs
Infection caused by Sarcoptes mites
Parasites that must be reported to both state and federal authorities
Infection with the demodectic (Demodex) species of mites
Clawlike features on he end of the second pair of legs of Myobia musculi and Radfordia affinis
Two cutting or lacerating organs of the capitulum
Penetrating, anchor-like sucking organ of the tick
Two leglike accessory appendages attached to the capitulum that act as sensory support.
Hard, chitinous plate that covers the body of some ticks
Species of ticks with a reddish or mahogany color
Species of ticks with distinctive white patterns on the dark reddish or mahogany background of the scutum
a family of ticks with soft bodies
Tick family with hard bodies
Paralysis seen in animals and humans caused by the toxic saliva in some ticks
Six-legged larval stage of the tick life cycle
Indentations or folds along the margin of an external body part
Demonstrating a variety of morphologic forms or body forms
Tongue worms, or linguatulids. One pentastome found in domestic animals is Linguatula serrata
the worm-like developmental stage found within the tissues of the intermediate host. It is the stage that is infective for the definitive host.
