Comparative flying and biting activity of Panamanian phlebotomine sandflies in a mature forest and adjacent open space



Comparative flying and biting activity of Panamanian phlebotomine sandflies in a mature forest and adjacent open space



Journal of Medical Entomology 11(1): 115-116



Light-traps and human bait were set out in mature forest and in clearings in mature forest in the Panama Canal Zone in 1971 to determine whether Phlebotomids were less prevalent in the clearings than in the forest. A total of 26 species was taken in the light-traps, the mean number of individuals being 85.7 inside the forest and 18.7 in the clearings. On man, 5 species were taken and the mean number of individuals was 32.4 in the forest and 2.0 in the clearings.
