tsutsugamushi, which is transmitted by larvae of trombiculid
mites (chiggers) and threatens >1 billion human inhabitants within the so-called tsutsugamushi triangle in the Asia-Pacific region (1).
Scrub typhus was mostly prevalent in the fall between September and November (Table 2), which could be explained by the fact that humans are infected with scrub typhus by bites from the larvae of trombiculid
mites, which hatch and suck body fluid in the fall (1, 7).
It is transmitted by the bite of infected larvae of trombiculid
mites (chiggers) and maintained by transovarial transmission.
(5) It is caused by the infection of Orientia bacteria which is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected trombiculid
larval mites, commonly referred to as chiggers, which serve as vectors and main reservoirs of this pathogenic bacterium.
Possums were considered infected with trombiculid
mites based on the distinctive macroscopic appearance of trombiculid
mite infections, with larval mites sampled and identified microscopically.
Scrub typhus, which is spread by several species of trombiculid
mites or chiggers, poses a large threat in regard to typhus epidemics, particularly in Asia, but sporadic cases of different types of typhus are being seen everywhere, including in the United States, according to George M.
For instance, in the South Pacific, Oceania, and Asia trombiculid
mites of the genus Leptotrombidium are known to be vectors of tsutsugamushi, also known as scrub typhus.
 When an infected trombiculid
mite ("chiggers," Leptotrombidium deliense) bites, the disease gets transmitted to the humans.
mites live free in nature and prefer biotopes with well-drained dump soil, where animals that The life cycle represents a complete metamorphosis, and only the larval stages can infest animals (Curtis, 2012).

It is transmitted to humans through the bite of the larva (chiggers) of a trombiculid
mite which serves both as vector and reservoir (4).
