After more than four decades of fighting Chagas' disease vector transmission in Brazil, the setting investigated still has a wide distribution of triatomines and is among the regions originally at risk for vector transmission, along the states of Alagoas, Bahia, the Federal District, Goias, among others, a condition explained by the number of autochthonous and potentially vector species (7), such as T brasiliensis (4-8) and T pseudomaculata (9) and the emergence of "new species", such as P lutzi (10), all of which are found in the field of this study.

The Tobias Barreto municipality, a medium-risk area located in the south-central region of the state, presented a higher infestation index than municipalities with a high risk of transmission, indicating a trend for a possible upward transition in the risk of vector transmission. This municipality borders an area classified by the Ministry of Health of Brazil as being at high risk for transmission (Itabaianinha).
The basic reproduction number [R.sub.0] for system (1)-(7) can be written in terms of the basic reproduction numbers corresponding to the vector transmission [R.sub.V] and direct transmission [R.sub.S] as
Vector transmission studies using two aphid species Aphis craccivora and A.
Another major factor in vector transmission is the amount of virus inoculated in the saliva, which can affect pathogenesis (21); this value is critical for determining realistic animal model doses.
infantum was spread by vertical transmission over many canine generations; no evidence of vector transmission has been reported (5,6).
Although these parasites are rarely transmitted by insects in the United States, there is concern that vector transmission may increase (1).
