The relationship between R0, synanthropic animal abundance and triatomine mortality. Top: System with 10 humans. Bottom: System without humans. Run with 500 infected bugs (i.e., 'vectors') and 10 human hosts for triatomine mortality increases between 1–20 times the background rate, and 1–30 synthropic animals, of which 75 % are competent T. cruzi hosts
