How To Detect Yeerks

Post by Tim Bruening » Mon Feb 13, 2012 6:46 pm

How to detect Yeerks: I: Periodically Scan everyone for Yeerk DNA, especially when entering a key site. II: Periodically X-ray people's heads, especially when entering a key site. III: Employ Leerans to scan pyschally for Yeerks.

I was proposing methods of detecting Yeerks without a tedious three day waiting period. I don't like the idea of the subject having to be watched continuously for 72 hours, even when he goes to the bathroom!

hmm... then I propose an inner ear inspection. In Visser she talks about how you have to rearrange a number of membranes and such to gain entry. Surely that would leave evidence behind

My proposals are for the era following the defeat of the Yeerks and Earth's entry into the interstellar community (All humans would know about morphing and Andalites).

If you are thinking about the time period covered by the Animorph books, then your idea sounds very dangerous!

Get a vacuum and suck the yeerk out of the ear canal~ a bit gruesome but wouldn't it work?

Uh... not very likely. And the Yeerk is attached to the host's brain, so if your idea worked, you'd probably end up sucking out the host's brain too. Kinda defeats the whole purpose if you ask me.
