Abstract

Summary

The preference indexes of several chemically defined sugar solutions were determined for adult female . These mosquitoes not only engorged on a solution of sucrose, the preferred sugar, but also fed to repletion on unattractive test preparations when supplemented with this disaccharide. This information was utilized in the development of a simple feeding procedure for this insect which would provide sizeable numbers of engorged mosquitoes.
