Thus began a process of adaptation and domiciliation to human habitations through which the vectors had direct access to abundant food as well as protection from climatic changes and predators. A good example of this adaptation is T. infestans, the main vector of T. cruzi in the Southern Cone countries of South America. T. infestans is considered to be an almost exclusively domiciliary species, and the same is true for R. prolixus in the northern region of South and Central America. Estimates have been made about the age of the order Xenarthra (which contains armadillos, anteaters, and sloths), one of the four major clades of placental mammals reported to be hosts for T.
The following cultural and societal chaos rarely offered the native populations improvements with respect to living quarters. Thus, the picture painted by archaeological findings of events in the past nine millennia begins with primitive dwelling structures that were altered by the succession of cultural groups until historic times, but not to a degree that would prevent infestation by the Chagas disease’s insect vector. Another interesting study of T. cruzi in human remains dating back 4500À7000 years were obtained from a Brazilian archeological site.
