High resolution satellite imagery assists hunt for infectious 'kissing bugs'

Their targets are blood-sucking reduviid insects, generally known as 'kissing bugs' because they emerge from their hiding places each night to bite human skin where it is thinnest around the mouth and eyes. Growing up to five centimetres long, the kissing bugs a...
