Found this bug on the floor while cleaning my bedroom.
bayucca, I didn't know that! Always nice to learn something new
Yes, but usually not this one, specially Triatominae. Chagas is to my knowledge only transmitted from these Triatominae which are only be found in the Americas.
Be careful, assassin bugs often carry parasites responsible for Chagas disease
Thanks bayucca! I hope this assasin bug only prey on insects in my bedroom...
Should be Reduviidae, Assassin Bug.
