Abstract

Summary

Precipitin tests on wild-caught at Reelfoot Lake, Tennessee, demonstrated that this mosquito feeds extensively on cows, horses, and other domestic animals. Although man was not as available as the domestic animals, he was the source of a fair (9 per cent) percentage of blood meals.

Preferential feeding experiments indicated that man is about as attractive to as several species of domestic animals when all are equally available as a source of blood.
