During studies on the biology of sandflies in Itaipu, Rio de Janeiro state day catches were performed in a chicken house. Species such Lutzomyia intermedia, L. migonei and L. fischeri use the chicken house as refuge for blood digestion before moving for a better place to lay eggs. There is no evidence that chicken coop is a breeding site for those sandflies in the area.
