Sarcoptes scabiei or the itch mite and media and social activists

Sarcoptes scabiei or the itch mite and media and social activists

While politicians are busy making decisions and framing policies and delivering programs and projects in national interest.

Bureaucrats, judges, police, military, scientists, educationists, experts and so on are busy cooperating and facilitating and fine tuning those activities of government.

But unfortunately so called pseudo self proclaimed know all and judge all media persons and many other activists who go by several names and labels, some with good intentions and many with hidden agenda and ulterior motives, resort to too much of unsolicited and unnecessary questions and de-motivating and discouraging scrutiny of everything and everyone else with very deep levels of decadent discussions.

These bunches are the social equivalent of Sarcoptes Scabiei with short life span but can create enough itching and destroy the very fabric of mind set of the people through their brain washing techniques.

‘Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty’

Have glimpse into the history, geography and multiple implantation of the catchy line ‘Have glimpse into the history, geography and multiple implantation of the catchy line ‘Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty’ in this link -

But vigilance is not suspicious nagging or sickening scrutiny ad nauseam or continuous scratching to cause a wound or create an irritation emanating out of an itch to gain cheap publicity.

“Sarcoptes scabiei or the itch mite is a parasitic arthropod that burrows into skin and causes scabies. The mite is cosmopolitan, meaning it can be found in all parts of the world. Humans are not the only mammals that can become infected. Other mammals, such as wild and domesticated dogs and cats (in which it is one cause of mange) as well as ungulates, wild boars, bovids, wombats, koalas, and great apes are affected.[1]
The discovery of the itch mite in 1687 marked scabies as the first disease of humans with a known cause.[2] The Italian biologist Diacinto Cestoni showed in the 18th century that scabies is caused by the mite Sarcoptes scabiei, variety hominis. The disease produces intense, itchy skin rashes when the impregnated female tunnels into the stratum corneum of the skin and deposits eggs in the burrow. The larvae, which hatch in three to 10 days, move about on the skin, moult into a nymphal stage, and then mature into adult mites. The adult mites live three to four weeks in the host's skin”

Life cycle of  Sarcoptes scabiei  refer here-

“The life cycle of Sarcoptes scabiei var. canis was systematically investigated in vivo. The life cycle of females and males consisted of an egg, larva, protonymph, and a tritonymph that gave rise to an adult. Development from egg to adult required 10.06-13.16 days for the male and 9.93-13.03 days for the female.
