Oviposition repellents of mosquitoes negative responses elicited by lower aliphatic carboxylic acids



Oviposition repellents of mosquitoes negative responses elicited by lower aliphatic carboxylic acids



Journal of Chemical Ecology 6(2): 415-424



Organic infusions elicit discriminatory responses in ovipositing mosquitoes. A Purina Lab Chow infusion induces negative oviposition behavior in Culex pipiens quinquefasciatus Say and C. tarsalis Coquillett. The 6 aliphatic carboxylic acids isolated from the active fraction of this infusion were acetic, propionic, isobutyric, butyric, isovaleric and caproic acids. The negative oviposition responses of Culex mosquitoes to these carboxylic acids were quantified in a laboratory bioassay system and the main acid component, butyric acid, was tested against Culiseta, Aedes and Anopheles mosquitoes.
