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
Analysis of human skin emanations by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry. 1. Thermal desorption of attractants for the yellow fever mosquito (Aedes aegypti) from handled glass beads.
TLDR
Cryofocusing volatiles from handled glass allowed identification of lactic acid, aliphatic fatty acids, and other polar to nonpolar compounds of moderate volatility while purge and trap allowed detection of nonPolar to moderately polar compounds of high volatility. 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
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
Comparison of Contact and Spatial Repellency of Catnip Oil and N,N-Diethyl-3-methylbenzamide (Deet) Against Mosquitoes
TLDR
Catnip oil and deet were both weakly attractive to Ae. Expand
LABORATORY EVALUATION OF MOSQUITO TRAPS BAITED WITH A SYNTHETIC HUMAN ODOR BLEND TO CAPTURE AEDES AEGYPTI
TLDR
The results suggest that the synthetic blend is effective in attracting Ae. Expand
LABORATORY COMPARISON OF AEDES AEGYPTI ATTRACTION TO HUMAN ODORS AND TO SYNTHETIC HUMAN ODOR COMPOUNDS AND BLENDS1
TLDR
Competitive and noncompetitive bioassays established that some blends are equivalent or more attractive to Aedes aegypti than human odors, and the overall trend was that the trinary blend was more attractive than binary blends, and binary blends were moreractive than single compounds. Expand
Attraction of mosquitoes to volatiles associated with blood
TLDR
These assay methods are effective for evaluation of volatile compounds from blood, and although responses were obtained to several compounds, none were as effective as blood in the olfactometer and landing assays. Expand
Elution Patterns from Capillary GC for Methyl-Branched Alkanes
A common and confusing problem in analyses of insect hydrocarbons is in making sense of complicated gas chromatograms and interpreting mass spectra since branched chain compounds differing by one orExpand
