Crithidias and trypanosomes persisted for many days in feces of various species of Triatoma experimentally killed by heat, and in the feces and body fluids of other cone-nosed bugs which had died a natural death.

Tanto las formas critidias, como los tripanosomas adultos, persistieron muchos dias en las deyecciones de los triatomas experimentalmente matados por calor, y en las deyecciones y fluidos de otros, muertos de muerte natural.
