Comparative sensitivity of mosquito species and strains to the repellent diethyl toluamide.
The results obtained suggested that differences in levels of sensitivity to deet were a function of the taxonomic distance between the strains compared, and individual, mosquitoes within the strains tested also differed in their levels ofensitivity. Expand
Laboratory tests of repellents against Lutzomyia longipalpis (Diptera: Psychodidae).
Comparative sensitivity of this sand fly species to repellents appears to be greater than that of certain mosquito, flea, tick, and reduviid bug species. Expand
A Bibliography of Diethyl Toluamide
The repellent N,N -diethyl-m-toluamide (deet) was first synthesized by McCabe et al. (1954) and first tested as a repellent by King (1954). Since that time it has gained wide acceptance as anExpand
Effects of Population Density on Prodenia litura (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
In comparison with solitary individuals reared in isolation, larvae reared under crowded conditions had a shorter larval period, developed darker coloration, and gave rise to smaller pupae in whichExpand
Experimental plague in the California ground squirrel.
In experiments to determine the current susceptibility to plague, it was demonstrated that 256 Yersinia pestis (a local strain of high virulence) were required to produce a 50% infectious dose (ID50)Expand
Rearing of Diamanus Montanus (Siphonaptera: Ceratophyllidae) and Hoplopsyllus Anomalus (Siphonaptera: Pulicidae)
Diamanus montanus and Hoplopsyllus anomalus were reared in plastic jars on a substrate of ground corncobs, using suckling mice as the blood meal source and a mixture of guinea pig diet and blood mealExpand
