Two aedine and three anopheline species were allowed to blood-feed to repletion, and their host-seeking behavior was measured with an olfactometer at intervals afterward. Both Aedes aegypti (L.) and Ae. albopictus (Skuse) were inhibited from subsequently seeking a host during the gonotrophic cycle, but Anopheles gambiae Giles, An. albimanus Wiedemann, and An. freeborni Aitken, all showed varying degrees of host-seeking behavior while their eggs matured. Continued host-seeking by some… Expand
Multiple Blood Feeding and Host-Seeking Behavior in Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
It was found that multiple feeding and host-seeking behavior were negatively correlated with body size, i.e., small mosquitoes tended to have more contact with hosts, and multiple feeding increased fecundity. Expand
Feeding strategies of anthropophilic mosquitoes result in increased risk of pathogen transmission.
TLDR
Research is shown that for two of the most important vectors of human pathogens (Anopheles gambiae and Aedes aegypti) imbibing multiple bloodmeals during a gonotrophic cycle while foregoing sugar feeding is a common behaviour, not an exception. Expand
Multiple Blood Meals in Anopheles darlingi (Diptera: Culicidae)
ABSTRACT: Anopheles darlingi is an important vector of human malaria in the Amazon. Adult females of this mosquito species require a blood meal to develop eggs, preferring humans to other bloodExpand
Host Feeding Responses of Aedes aegypti (L.) Exposed to Deltamethrin
TLDR
These findings indicate that as deltamethrin concentrations decrease to sublethal levels, mating status and host cues play a more significant role in escape behavior, and insemination can influence the outcome of feeding success and flight movement of nulliparous female Ae. Expand

Abstract The blood-feeding behaviour of the Trinidad strain of Aedes aegypti was studied, under laboratory conditions, using one female per cage and monitoring blood feeding immediately, 12, and 24Expand
Effect of body size on multiple blood feeding and egg retention of Aedes aegypti (L.) and Aedes albopictus (Skuse) (Diptera : Culicidae)
TLDR
It is suggested that oviposition was incomplete in small females with low energy reserves, and that females emerging under subpar-diet conditions may perform MBF to improve fecundi- ty. Expand
Multiple factors contribute to anautogenous reproduction by the mosquito Aedes aegypti.
TLDR
The results collectively suggest that blood meal dependent release of OEH and ILP3 is one factor that prevents A. aegypti from reproducing autogenously and two other factors that potentially inhibit autogeny are examined: teneral nutrient reserves and the ability of Oeh andILP3 to stimulate egg formation in the absence of blood feeding.

ECOLOGY OF THE MALARIA VECTOR, ANOPHELES (NYSSORHYNCHUS) MARAJOARA GALVÃO AND DAMASCENO IN TRINIDAD, WEST INDIES
TLDR
The results suggest that this species can play a significant role in the transmission of malaria within its geographical range in the Neotropics. Expand
Oogenic development and gonotrophic cycle of Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus in laboratory.
TLDR
The follicle length showed significant differences between species at Christophers' stages 2" and 5, whereas follicle amplitude was different between the two mosquitoes at stages 2", 3 and 4, and provided new evidence on the reproductive strategies of Ae. Expand
Multiple host-feeding and biting persistence of Aedes aegypti.
TLDR
It seems that some individuals are significantly less at risk from mosquito-borne pathogens than others, as one of the female hosts was consistently and significantly less attractive to host-seeking mosquitoes than any other volunteer in all four settings. Expand

Detection of multiple blood feeding in Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae) during a single gonotrophic cycle using a histologic technique.
We evaluated a histologic technique for its usefulness in detecting multiple blood feeding by Aedes aegypti (L.) in a single gonotrophic cycle. To standardize the procedure, we carried out aExpand

TLDR
Multiple feeding within a single gonotrophic cycle may result if mosquitoes take small blood meals which are insufficient to terminate host-seeking, and partial meals and reduced feeding success of mosquitoes can result from defensive host behavior, which in the laboratory rat was shown to increase at high mosquito densities.

Multiple blood meals as a reproductive strategy in Anopheles (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
G gonotrophic discordance also was found routinely in these anopheline species, and the ratio of yolk protein to lipids varied inter- and intra-specifically, as well as among consecutive blood meals, indicating a considerable plasticity in the caloric distribution of these two yolk components. Expand
Effect of mosquito density on the interrelationship of host behavior and mosquito feeding success.
TLDR
An inverse relationship between the density of mosquitoes and the proportion that successfully obtained blood was indicated, ascribed to the increase in defensive activity displayed by the birds when exposed to increases in mosquito density. Expand
Malaria transmission potential of Anopheles mosquitoes in the Mwea‐Tebere irrigation scheme, Kenya
TLDR
Anopheles arabiensis Patton and An.funestus Giles were identified as vectors of Plasmodium falciparum malaria in the Mwea‐Tebere irrigation scheme, Kenya and the only member of the An.gambiae complex identified from chromosome characteristics was identified. Expand
Laboratory oviposition, fecundity and egg hatching ability of colonized Anopheles albimanus from southwestern Mexico.
TLDR
Fecundity, oviposition patterns and egg hatching characteristics were studied in two colonies of Anopheles albimanus isolated from the Pacific coast of southern Mexico and hatching success of eggs increased significantly when the Oviposition site was witheld until 48 hr post-bloodmeal. Expand

Concentration of host blood protein during feeding by anopheline mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae).
TLDR
Concentration of blood proteins during the act of feeding, before diuresis, is unique for Anopheles and led to increased fecundity when compared to blood meals given by enema, similar to results with Aedes. Expand
Initiation and termination of host-seeking inhibition in Aedes aegypti during oöcyte maturation
TLDR
It is concluded that 2 humoral factors are involved in the promotion of host-seeking inhibition: the first factor is produced by the ovaries, and after reaching a critical threshold in the haemolymph, stimulates the release of a second factor that acts directly to inhibit mosquito behaviour. Expand
