Feeding chambers used for Ornithodoros turicata challenges. One hundred O. turicata were fed on each pig. Ticks were placed in one of four feeding chambers (a) then randomly assigned to each pig subject. The feeding chamber was sealed with fabric (mesh size 2 mm) (b), through which the ticks could feed.
