Main facts about Trombicula
Trombicula, also known as chigger mites, are parasites to many animals. While adult stages are free-living, in their larval stage they attach to various animals, including humans. The main species that causes trombiculosis in dogs and cats is Neotrombicula autumnalis. A similar species, Straelensia cynotis, is responsible for straelenziosis.
