  • Biology, Medicine
  • Journal of medical entomology
  • 1 September 1999
TLDR
The repellency of different concentrations and combinations of 5 essential oils to Aedes aegypti and Anopheles albimanus Wiedemann when applied to human skin was determined in laboratory tests. Expand
Analysis of human skin emanations by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry. 2. Identification of volatile compounds that are candidate attractants for the yellow fever mosquito (Aedes aegypti).
TLDR
Volatile compounds emanated from human skin were studied by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry to identify compounds that may be human-produced kairomones which are used for host location by the mosquito, Aedes aegypti (L.). Expand
Laboratory Evaluation of Mosquito Repellents Against Aedes albopictus, Culex nigripalpus, and Ochlerotatus triseriatus (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
Four synthetic mosquito repellents and eight natural (primarily plant extracts and/or essential oils) product-based repellent products were tested in the laboratory against Aedes albopictus Skuse, Culex nigripalpus Theobald, and Ochlerotatus triseriatus. Expand
Synergistic Attraction of Aedes aegypti (L.) to Binary Blends of L-Lactic Acid and Acetone, Dichloromethane, or Dimethyl Disulfide
TLDR
Kairomones produced by humans provide female anthropophilic mosquitoes with vital cues used in host-seeking for a blood meal and it is postulated that at least one of these synergistic blends produces mosquito attraction behavior similar to L-lactic acid and CO2. Expand
Repellency of IR3535, KBR3023, para-menthane-3,8-diol, and Deet to Black Salt Marsh Mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) in the Everglades National Park
Abstract IR3535, KBR3023, para-menthane-3,8-diol (PMD), and deet were evaluated in controlled studies with human subjects (n = 5) for repellency to black salt marsh mosquitoes (OchlerotatusExpand
Biodegradation of poultry manure by house fly (Diptera : Muscidae)
TLDR
Under conditions in the field, manure parameters did not vary in response to larval density, although feeding activity reduced manure mass, moisture content, and manure dry matter content by 35%. Expand
Chemical analysis of human skin emanations: comparison of volatiles from humans that differ in attraction of Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae).
TLDR
Variation in the attraction of mosquitoes to handled or rubbed glass indicates that mosquito behavior varies over time and that a relative difference exists in the ability of people over time to attract mosquitoes. Expand
Laboratory and field evaluation of insect repellents as oviposition deterrents against the mosquito Aedes albopictus
TLDR
These topical skin repellents are effective oviposition deterrents for Ae. Expand
LABORATORY EVALUATION OF 21 INSECT REPELLENTS AS LARVICIDES AND AS OVIPOSITION DETERRENTS OF AEDES ALBOPICTUS (DIPTERA: CULICIDAE)
TLDR
Several botanical repellents previously shown to have minimal protection from mosquito bites proved effective oviposition deterrents and have good potential for development and use in management of container-inhabiting mosquitoes. Expand
Mosquito larvicidal properties of Orthosiphon thymiflorus (Roth) Sleesen. (Family: Labiatae) against mosquito vectors, Anopheles stephensi, Culex quinquefasciatus and Aedes aegypti (Diptera:
TLDR
The present results suggest that the effective plant crude Extract of Orthosiphon thymiflorus has potential to be used as an ideal eco-friendly approach for the control of mosquito vectors. Expand
