Blood sucking mosquitoes, ticks and fleas. Skin munching hair lice and eyelash mites. Twenty-meter long tapeworms that freeload off of their human hosts.
Body morphing Guinea worms, rash causing Hookworms, kid-loving Pinworms and eye invading Toxocara worms. Even potentially beneficial human feeders like leeches and maggots. There are many critters that prey on humans to successfully complete their life cycles. Some are just mildly irritating while others are responsible for infectious diseases like Lyme and epidemic outbreaks of fatal ailments like Malaria.
In the tradition of our very popular traveling exhibition CSI: Crime Scene Insects, our latest offering Eww! What’s Eating You? is destined to become our next big hit! It’s a must-see exhibit that will dig in to the history of human/parasite interaction from ancient Greece, Rome and Egypt to more modern tales of these often sinister critters that live to hitch a ride on human hosts.
