Efforts to develop mosquito attractants using vertebrate host volatiles have been well made under laboratory conditions but their attractiveness to mosquitoes in the wild still needs to be evaluated. In the present study, we evaluated the attraction of female Culex pipiens pallens Coquillett (Diptera: Culicidae) to 11 individual chemical compounds found in vertebrate host odors, and to synthetic blends, consisting of different combinations of the compounds. These tests were conducted under… CONTINUE READING
