L-lactic acid as a factor in the attraction of Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae) to human hosts.
Vapors from authentic L(+)-lactic acid released from glass sample tubes at rates comparable to those released from hands were attractive either in combination with carbon dioxide (CO2) in filtered air, or alone in room air, however, the synergistic effect of CO2 on the response to lactic acid did not persist more than a few seconds after the mosquitoes left an atmosphere rich in CO3.

Control of the stable fly, Stomoxys calcitrans (Diptera: Muscidae), on St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, using integrated pest management measures. III. Field techniques and population control.
In July 1974 a 3-year feasibility study was initiated on St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, on the use of the sterile-male technique as a replacement or adjunct to insecticidal or physical measures toExpand
Radiation and Radioisotopes Applied to Insects of Agricultural Importance
The paper reviews the appli­ cations of radioisotopes in entomology that have been developed at the two centres during the last few years, and finds that exchange of food takes place between nests more than 50 m apart and belonging to different species. Expand
Evaluation of personal protection methods against phlebotomine sand flies including vectors of leishmaniasis in Panama.
Maximum protection from bites would require application of deet or another suitable repellent to the exposed skin when wearing permethrin-treated clothing. Expand
Unique attractant-toxicant system to control stable fly populations.
Fiberglass panels treated with a pyrethroid compound at a rate of 2.5 g/m2 successfully reduced indigenous populations of Stomoxys calcitrans (L.) by 84–90% in 7–8 days in field trials. Expand
