The present follow-up study determines whether there is a relationship between the mosquito's preferences and its survival and fecundity. Groups of mosquitoes were separately given ad libitum opportunity to feed on five of the more preferred plant species (Hamelia patens, Parthenium hysterophorus, Ricinus communis, Senna… CONTINUE READING
