Abstract

Adult treehole mosquitoes were collected by vacuum-sweeping of vegetation in urban, suburban, and rural woodlots in northern Indiana. The sibling species and were identified by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Blood meals were identified by the modified precipitin method. fed predominantly on chipmunks and deer, and fed mainly on tree squirrels and racoon. The relative rates of feeding on the major hosts were variable depending on the location of collection, and probably reflected differences in host density. No blood-feeding on humans was detected.
