Investigation of sounds arising during the flight of four sympatric species of mosquitoes of the genus Aedes has shown that at 24 C the main frequences of females are in the ranges of 308 to 404 Hz and those of males from 503 to 566 Hz (Fig. 1, Tab). In the first instance interspecies differences vary from 20 to 96 Hz, in the second--from 11 to 63 Hz. It has been established by means of electrophysiological methods that Johnson's organs of males of A. diantaeus and A. communis at 24 C respond… CONTINUE READING
