Activity of female Tabanidae (Diptera) in relation to selected meteorological factors in South Carolina



Activity of female Tabanidae (Diptera) in relation to selected meteorological factors in South Carolina



Journal of Medical Entomology 14(2): 197-200



Hourly measurements of meterological parameters and tabanid activity were made during daylight periods from 10 June-28 Sept. 1975. Analysis of data indicated that the activity of Tabanidae [Chrysops spp., Tabanus spp.] attracted to CO2-baited traps in South Carolina USA is affected by barometric pressure, temperature, relative humidity, time of day, and cloud cover. A prediction equation involving the most significant variables was developed. A discernible difference in trap catches was noted for different cloud types. Wind and light intensity had no effect on tabanid activity.
