Branches are a problem all over the world. They are usually a problem in developing countries, but since then it has become a problem in the United Kingdom, the US, Canada and some parts of Europe. ( Centers for Disease Control and Prevention )
How much do the handles have annoyed the creatures of the planet? According to a new study, they were here because the dinosaurs were still on the Earth.
Evolution of the woodburn
Tree bugs are one of the most unpleasant pests, and it has long been thought that the branches have appeared about 50 to 60 million years ago, with bats being their first hostesses. However, a new study shows that bugs are actually twice as old as they are currently thought, and have actually evolved more than 100 million years ago.
This became clear after the researchers spent 15 years collecting samples from around the world and found a specimen of bed bugs that is about 115 million years old. That would be about 30 million years older than the oldest known bat specimen.
Interestingly, the findings also confirm the current belief that human evolution has led to the division of common human parasites into different species, as researchers have found that parasitic species are actually much older than humans.
Bed and Breakfast Hostels
Considering the new age of the bugs, it means that the earliest bed bugs have been circling the Earth during the dinosaurs. However, researchers argue that traps are unlikely to feed on the blood of dinosaurs, as lithe bugs usually feed on the blood of creatures that have homes, such as nests, holes, or, in the case of people, beds. Dinosaurs have not taken such habitat types.
In addition, the researchers found that the glands tend to conquer people every half million years, and that while some bed bugs specialize in a particular host, some have the ability to jump from one host to another.
Woodbugs and people
Researchers say the bad bugs are likely to be a major parasite for people in the coming years, especially given the much more opportunities provided by humans, animals and pets.
"These are the types that we can reasonably expect to be the next to drink our blood, and it can not even take half a million years," said Klaus Reinhard of the University of Dresden, who is leading the study.
However, the study is an effective tool for understanding more bed bugs, enabling us to see how to eliminate them more effectively.
