Mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) attracted to humans and four other animal species at Darwin, Northern Territory
Journal of the Australian Entomological Society 31 (2), 159-163
Abstract: During a study on the attraction of Anopheles farauti s.l. to humans and 4 other animal species (calf, pig, dog and domestic fowl), 25,000 mosquitoes belonging to 19 other species in 5 genera were also collected. Data for 7 species were sufficient for analysis of variance. There were overall significant differences between the numbers caught at different baits for 4 species, Anopheles bancroftii. An. meraukensis, Culex annulirostris and Aedes lineatopennis. All 4 species were more attracted to pig and calf than humans while dog was also more attractive to An. meraukensis. The different bait animals did not significantly affect the numbers of Mansonia uniformis, Ae. vigilax and Ae. reesi that were captured.
