Abstract

Blood-engoged (4,209) collected during 1960 to 1965 in Kern County, California and previously shown to have fed on passeriform birds by the precipitin test were further tested by the more sensitive passive hemagglutination inhibition test (PHI). It was shown that these mosquitoes fed principally on House Finches and House Sparrows, the most common passeriform birds found in the collection areas. These data demonstrate the usefulness of the PHI test for the identification of arthropod blood meals from closely related species.
