Ovicidal activity and killing times were evaluated for six pediculicides, using viable eggs and recently fed head lice from infested children. Lice were continuously exposed to the products until death, and elapsed time was recorded. Eggs were immersed for ten minutes, rinsed, and dried. Four synergized pyrethrin products (RID, R&C Shampoo, A-200 Pyrinate(More)
Bacterial symbiotes in the human body louse Pediculus humanus migrate from the mycetome to the lateral oviducts during the adult molt. Their migration was first described by Ries (E. Ries. 1931. Z. Morphol. Oekol. Tiere, 20:233-367.), who examined sectioned specimens with light microscopy. The present study is a more detailed investigation which involves(More)
Autogenous and anautogenous strains were selected from a laboratory colony of Culex tarsalis established from a foothill environment in Kern County, California. An autogenous strain also was selected from immatures collected at the Kern River. Autogenous and anautogenous strains remained heterogeneous and did not consistently exhibit 100 or 0% autogeny,(More)
A low volume formulation of propoxur wettable powder suspended in larvicidal oil was evaluated on 4 occasions in Kern Co., California during 1983 using fixed and rotary wing aerial application systems. Culex tarsalis abundance was suppressed significantly by all sprays, although reduction below the virus maintenance threshold of 30 females per trap night(More)
