Reduction of Triatoma infestans (Hemiptera:Reduviidae) experimental populations exposed to feeding inhibitors.


We found that feeding behavior of Triatoma infestans (Klug) 5th-instar nymphs was blocked by topical application of the cis-isomers of methyl esters of N-substituted maleamic acids, synthesized in our laboratory. The antifeeding effect of these compounds was determined by exposing 5th-instar nymphs to impregnated filter papers. The greatest antifeeding… (More)
