Effect of photoperiod on blood feeding activity of female hybrids between Culex pipiens pipiens and Culex pipiens quinquefasciatus (Diptera: Culicidae)
Culex pipiens pipiens | Culex pipiens quinquefasciatus | short photoperiod | diapause | hybrids
mesheuropmc: endocrine system | reproductive and urinary physiology | fungi | parasitic diseases | hormones, hormone substitutes, and hormone antagonists
Blood feeding activity was examined in females of hybrids (F1) between Culex pipiens pipiens and Culex pipiens quinquefasciatus in long and short photoperiods at 2l℃ to examine the effect of photoperiod on blood feeding rate. Blood feeding rates (F1) were lower in short...
