This study showed that although head lice are arrested around human scalp samples, they did not show differences between the human samples of different volunteers nor with the aging of the scalp sample (i.e., 60 h-old samples are as much attractive as 0 h-old samples) (Ortega Insaurralde et al., 2016). Thus, a piece of filter paper (1 cm × 1 cm) was rubbed during 30 s against the scalp of one 30-year-old female volunteer who had not bathed or used perfumed products in the 24 h previous to the extraction.

Abstract Porcine haemoplasmosis caused by Mycoplasma suis affects the global pig industry with significant economic losses. The main transmission route of M. suis is through the blood and some haematophagous arthropods, like flies and mosquitoes, could be the vectors to this pathogen. However, the presence of M. suis in pig haematophagous ectoparasites in natural conditions has not yet been studied. The most frequent ectoparasite in pigs is the blood-sucking louse Haematopinus suis, an obligate and permanent parasite. Therefore, this work aims to study the occurrence of M. suis in H. suis samples from both domesti...
