It almost looks like an alien, which has landed on upper arm. With six barbed legs and transparent wings. It sits for a while sluggishly around as if it were thinking. But n he jerks his pair of wings as if in a B-Movie Horrorthriller, crawls in an Affentempo on shoulder, furr into neck hair – and bites.

n

What hell is this again for a crab-crawling man? Is it not enough that you have to worry about ticks in wild? No, re is a whole or bloodsucking parasite here in woods.

n

After monster bite, ask at Dr. Wolf Groth from Berlin Center for Travel and Tropical Medicine. He knows this very peculiar parasite well: five millimeters tall, his descendants live alive, transparent wings with breakouts.

n

It is deer louse (Lipoptena cervi). Ötzi has already pissed, Steinzeit hiker from Ötztal, as scientists could prove in remains of fur coat.

nIt itches up to three weeks n

Today, as n, this deer flies in early autumn, especially after such lousy summers, in swarms through woods. In search of a victim in which she hopes to hibernate. Somehow understandable.

n

She usually only gets deer, deer, chamois, wild boar, even mice. But horses, sheep, and cows are also attacked, and dogs are allowed to be farmed in countryside. The Swedes know m as an algae flight, Finns as hirulans, because y like to bite moose. In Scotland and North East of USA, y are hated as deer keds because y attack deer and white-backed deer.

"The human being is refore only a faulty host", assists medics specialist Groth. However, strollers can be used, which can be extremely painful. The wound itches up to 20 days. There may be bumps, pustules, house rashes, suppurations. "An antiallergic like fenistil is helpful," says doctor.

n

However, louse can also be transmitted to Bartonella schoenbuchensis, a bacterium discovered in a nearby recreation area near Stuttgart in 2001, which can cause dermatitis in both animals and humans.

Headcover – and no fur collar

So what can be done to prevent it? There is so far no insect repellent, which quenches. "Wear a head cover during forest walk in autumn," advises Dr. Groth. Because Hirschlaus flies now everything, which reminds of fur. Hunters, who cursed at se plague gangs, also found this.

n

"Most of time, Hirschläuse is noticed only when y are digging through ir hair. The longer mane, wilder search, "says Christian Schätze, editor in chief of magazine" our hunting ". "Just at hairline, y are already ten centimeters furr crawled. We should not demonize m anyway. Because y announce good game. Where re are hirsuts, stag is not far. "

n

A practical tip is given by Forstamtsrat and Manfred Bogumil from Reinhardswald in north of Hessen: "Do not walk with wild lear jackets or fur collar in woods!" Hirschlaus notices ir error only after landing, when she has thrown down wings. And n it's too late.
