Wiping out parasites from the face of the planet might sound like good news. However, parasites like ticks, fleas, lice, and tapeworms play a vital role in maintaining the balance of the ecosystem. According to BABW News, the absence of parasites will upset the natural balance of the planet’s bionetwork. While these parasites bring various diseases to animals and humans, they play a big role in Earth’s ecology. Parasites are key factors that naturally manage the populations of wildlife. They are also agents that maintain the flow of energy through the natural food chains of the planet.
So this will be eliminating food that other species consumes, ie bats, birds, frogs, etc.
And the ones that remain could be more deadly than ever.
