Effect of egg mass age on subsequent oviposition by Simulium reptans (Diptera: Simuliidae)


, : Effect of egg mass age on subsequent oviposition by Simulium reptans (Diptera: Simuliidae). Journal of Medical Entomology 29(2): 293-295

The frequency distribution of Simulium reptans L. egg deposition on artificial substrates with different egg mass age characteristics showed there was a preference for substrates with 1-d-old egg masses present. The reason for this preference is not known, but it may involve an oviposition pheromone.
