CARANHA, Lindembergh et al. Feeding sources evaluation of Panstrongylus lutzi (Neiva & Pinto, 1923) (Hemiptera: Reduviidae: Triatominae) in the State of Ceará. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2006, vol.39, n.4, pp. 347-351. ISSN 0037-8682.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0037-86822006000400006.

The authors used precipitin technique to detect the feeding sources of Panstrongylus lutzi (Neiva & Pinto, 1923) in 20 municipalities of Ceará State, Brazil. The results detected the presence of blood from eight different blood sources and mixed feedings, demonstrating that Panstrongylus lutzi is an eclectic species. High infection rates for Trypanosoma like-cruzi were detected.
