Abstract

Light-weight net jackets treated with -diethyl--toluamide (deet) were field-tested in Panama against five species of biting midges, principally (Poey) and Wirth and Blanton. The deet-treated jacket provided 87–93% protection. Time of day as well as season appeared to influence the proportionate numbers of species collected. The mean coefficient of protection was slightly lower during morning tests when was most abundant and higher during evening tests when was most abundant.
