Zophobas morio are a type of beetle that comes for Central and South America. They are mostly used to feed reptiles. To do this experiment you will need a plastic contain and some kind of different substrate or food than they are normally given. About 60% of the superworms would rather go to an apple than potato. The experiment is inconclusive because all of the superworms did not go directly to the apple or potato all three times.
Those who compete in any contact sports are also more likely to contract the disease also anyone who live in damp, humid areas. If people live in damp, humid areas they (kids) could suggest to move somewhere else or just change locations. Maybe taking a shower after a match could help or during the break dry off well. For those who own pets maybe get them a regular vet checkup or buy products which prevents this disease, Don’t share items like combs, towel and personal belongings, Stay dry and clean & Inform other of this disease along with how to prevent it. These are ways to prevent the disease but we can’t prevent it if it is in our genetics. One way to cure it is to keep the affected area as clean as possible. This will at the very least stop it from spreading. Most of the time you will need to apply the medicine on your skin for 2 to 4 weeks to ensure you kill the fungus that causes ringworm. It will likewise bring down the odds of it returning. If you have ringworm on your scalp (Tinea Captis) or in a wide range of spots on your body, OTC (Nonprescription medicine) medications may not be sufficient. Your GP will recommend you a medicine for an antifungal prescription that you will need
What should we do about invasive species? Should we humans take action or let nature take this case? There are two sides to this problem, but as humans we should consider what action to take afterall we started this problem. Invasive species have done harm to the environment by spreading and taking over the environment. They have caused endangered species at risk due to them. The threats of invasive species are that they carry diseases and are cable of changing ecosystems. In this essay I will argue that humans need to take action to solve this problem we created before its brings danger to our environment, ecosystem, and human health as the cause of killer bees.
There are many healthcare disparities involving parasitic infection. One disparity, for example, is that any one can get parasitic infection, it is so easy to be infected by a parasitic infection. Also, to really prevent one from getting a parasitic infection, they would have to be extremely cautious on the food they are eating and the water they are drinking. It is more common in regions of tropical or subtropical to avoid getting infected. We can also get infected through our pets and the disparity in this is that its hard to keep up with everything to avoid getting infected with parasitic
Ringworm is the most common form of fungal infection in the world. It is an extremely contagious skin infection. There was not even any documentation of this until the 1920 's. It is theorized that American soldiers brought it to the United States after World War I from Europe.
Lay the organism (earthworm, frogs, or fetal pig) on a dissection tray with its ventral side up. Garbage bag is sometimes required to prevent any internal fluids from splashing onto the surface.
Lyme disease is a bacterial infection caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi. The disease is spread through the bite of a deer tick. The ticks are carried by several different animals that live in wooded areas. They range from deer, raccoons, skunks, to chipmunks and squirrels. (WebMD). Lyme disease is virtually only found in the northeast and upper Midwest of the United States. The states that Lyme disease is found in include, Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, and Wisconsin. In 2014, 96 percent of all cases came out of these states. Upwards of 30,000 people a year are diagnosed a year with Lyme disease. This is only a fraction
The most common ways of treatment of the roundworms involve taking all the medications which assist in killing the parasites in the body (Jex, 2011). The medications which are taken usually depend on the type of roundworms which are targeted. The most common medications which are offered by the nurses include mebendazole, the albendazole, and the piperazine. These three types of medications are usually prescribed by the nurses in order to help in fighting against the roundworms in the body. In some circumstances, the diagnosis may show that the patients have to take some surgeries. These surgeries are common in many areas but very uncommon in areas where the roundworm infections are very
I personally found Chapter 5 to be very fascianitng; I love learning about host manipulation. Organisms, regardless of size or other classifcations, aim to survive and reproduce. Organisms that cause diseases are no exception. These organisms will manipualte their host so that the disease spreads to new victims, helping the disease-causing organisms survive and reproduce. An example of host manipualtion is the interaction between humans and the Guine worm. Intially, a human drinks water contaminated with water fleas, which have eaten the Guinea worm larvae. The human digestive system destroys the fleas, but the Guinea worm larvae survive. A year after infection, the larvae are fully grown and females make their way to the surface of the skin.
More than thirty thousand people become victims of Lyme disease each year. Hundreds of people are affected by Colorado tick fever annually. Eleven percent of Powassan virus victims end up dying. What could cause all of these horrible diseases? Surprisingly, it is the tiny tick that spreads these epidemics. And these are not the only tick-borne diseases. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that there are fifteen known tick borne diseases in the world. Unfortunately, most of these diseases can be fatal if they are not treated. Considering this fact, we should be more concerned about preventing Lyme disease since it is more dangerous than we think. In this essay, I will explore the transmission, symptoms, and prevention of Lyme
I first saw the warm in the beaker on the bottom crawling around and balling up. Next, I used a pipet to suck one of the worms out. I put my worm on my plastic piece that was filled with spring water. The water was full enough to fill the container about half way. I put plenty of water so the worm would not dry up and die. Furthermore, I cut the worm in half after measuring it. The measurement calculated to be 5mm in the whole worm that first week. I kept my worm next to the other student organized so I would not forget where I put it.
Pediculus humanus capitis is the scientific name to what is most commonly known to us as the head lice. The head louse is a Eukaryote that belongs to the Animalia kingdom and is categorized as an obligate parasite. An obligate parasite needs a host in order to complete its life cycle. Without a host the head lice are unable to reproduce and survive. Head lice must feed off another living body to survive. Their source of food is human blood, which they get from the scalp.
Medications presented in this section are intended to provide general information about possible treatment. The treatment for a particular condition may evolve as medical advances are made. Chemotherapy—used in a combination or sequential protocol; some protocols have induction and maintenance ,Prednisone alone—can be used to decrease clinical signs and improve how the ferret feels; temporary response, not a cure
Giardia lamblia is difficult to detect especially using the conventional method . Those few researches was done to improve the findings of this parasite. One of the most effective and precise method was molecular analysis. Molecular analysis is a well-known method and recently used by researchers. Using this
