Evidence of an ‘invitation’ effect in feeding sylvatic Stegomyia albopicta from Cambodia
The ‘invitation’ effect was investigated over 33 days in secondary forest in Mondolkiri Province, Cambodia
This article concludes that the ‘invitation’ effect may be due to a semio-chemical produced early in the feeding process. Incorporating such a chemical into traps designed to control dengue and chikungunya viruses might potentially improve their attractiveness.
