Others    Not to panic as stink bugs just bite mice: scientist (Sep 28, 2010)

Head of Institute of Environment and Sustainable Development (IESD) Pham Binh Quyen, an insect expert, told inhabitants not to so much worry as the blood-sucking stink bugs like biting rats only.

People seemly fall to panic as the media currently reports that outbreaks of blood-sucking insects occurred in residential quarters in Hanoi and Da Nang and 1,000 b hatches of the insect had recently been discovered.

In the world, there are three kinds of blood-sucking stink bugs including Triatoma, Rhodinius, and Panbylus.  Rhodinius has seen most in Vietnam while a few of Triatoma and Panbylus exist in the Southeast Asian nation.

There is a disorder in its living condition, the bugs appear in residential blocks but in fact they live in mountainous and midland regions.

In nature, they are useful insects, helping to kill harmful worms, said the expert.

Scientists have disclosed they found parasites in bugs’ blood and they can be transmitted by the bugs, however diseases caused by the parasites only attack livestock, said the expert.

Stink bugs are not known to bite humans, he added.
