The digger wasp Crossocerus vagabundus (Panzer, 1798) (Hymenoptera, Crabronidae, Crabronini) hunting for workers of Myrmica rubra (Linnaeus, 1758) was recorded for the first time. Various dipterans, mostly crane flies (Tipulidae), were the only known prey for this species. The modes of wasp hunting for worker ants are described. The reasons for unusual choice of prey are discussed. © 2010 Pleiades Publishing, Ltd. Source

At present, the role of nonspecific prophylaxis of natural focal infections, whose agents are transmitted by hard ticks (Ixodidae) during bloodsucking, increases. Biological peculiarities of the taiga tick, Ixodes persulcatus, which is assumed as the basis for optimization of human behavior on a territory with a risk of tick attack and, moreover, for the development of means and methods for personal protection of humans against these ticks, are discussed. The efficacy of treating clothes with repellents and insecticides is evaluated. The data on places of attaching ticks to humans in natural biotopes of Irkutsk region are given. Special clothing for human protection against ticks is described. Source
