The diurnal biting pattern of a bloodsucking midge Forcipomyia (Lasiohelea) taiwana (Shiraki) (Diptera, Ceratopogonidae)

The diurnal biting pattern of a bloodsucking midge Forcipomyia (Lasiohelea) taiwana (Shiraki) (Diptera, Ceratopogonidae)

Zhonghua Minguo Wei Sheng Wu Ji Mian Yi Xue Za Zhi 14(1): 54-56

Observations were made at 3 villages in Hualien Hsien, Taiwan, from April to September 1978 on the diurnal biting activity of Forcipomyia taiwana (Shir.), a possible vector of Japanese encephalitis. Collections were made of the midge from human baits from 08.00 to 18.00 h every 1-3 days during each month of the study period. The data showed that biting activity increased from 08.00 to 14.00 h and declined thereafter.
