By: R. Mitchell n, J. Zhu n, A. Carr n, A. Dhammi n, G. Cave n, D. Sonenshine*, R. Roe n

author keywords: American dog tick; Dermacentor variabilis; Haller's organ; Infrared; TRPA1; Light
MeSH headings : Animals; Dermacentor / physiology; Dermacentor / ultrastructure; Extremities; Infrared Rays; Phototaxis
TL;DR: The ability of ticks to use IR for host finding is consistent with their obligatory hematophagy and has practical applications in tick trapping and the development of new repellents. (via Semantic Scholar)
