Hi Daryl,

Yes the diseases are different depending on climates and area management. Animals or insects can transmit diseases, they are called vectors.
Indeed, for examples some insect vectors like mosquitoes or ticks are predominant in hot climates and can transmit parasites. That is why you will find piroplosmosis or Lyme diseases in south of France or Spain, Portugal… We should be aware of variation of diseases because of global warming.
