Bloodsucking Conenose can be found in Adair Co.

From Nick Roy, Adair Co. Extension Agent for Agriculture & Natural Resources
By Dr. Jonathon Larson, UK Extension Entomologist

These Kentucky representatives of the kissing bugs (also known as Triatomids) inspire fear in those who have discovered them. People can be bitten by conenoses, and as kissing bugs, this leads people to wonder if they were exposed to/contracted Chagas disease. Luckily, the chances of Eastern bloodsucking conenoses vectoring Chagas disease are low due to a variety of circumstances that make the conenose different than their close relatives in Triatomidae.

Bloodsucking Conenose Basics
As part of the kissing bug group, these are blood feeding critters (if the name wasn't a giveaway). Kissing bugs belong to the Hemiptera, also known as true bugs. Hemiptera includes things like aphids, stink bugs, bed bugs, cicadas, and many more.

Carol Perkins: The Trip

Previous Column: The Metal Chair

By Carol Perkins

Guy and I returned from vacation with two t-shirts, a cap, and Covid. We had been looking forward to this trip for weeks, and even though the possibility of Covid was ever present, we played it safe by testing the day before the flight and before meeting our new six-week-old great-nephew Sagan Thomas (Sarah and Kurt live near Ormond Beach).

We were staying on Coco Beach, so they brought the baby over, we all went out to eat, and they drove the hour and a half back home. All was well.

I started feeling sick halfway into the trip.
