Mosquito Gonotrophic Cycle and Multiple Feeding Potential: Contrasts Between Anopheles and Aedes (Diptera: Culicidae)


Klowden, Marc J; Briegel, Hans (1994). Mosquito Gonotrophic Cycle and Multiple Feeding Potential: Contrasts Between Anopheles and Aedes (Diptera: Culicidae). Journal of Medical Entomology, 31(4):618-622.

Abstract

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 hostseeking behavior while their eggs matured. Continued host-seeking by some anophelines during the gonotrophic cycle has important implications for some assumptions commonly made about mosquito behavior and parasite transmission
