Abstract: The survival rate of domestic male and female adult Panstrongylus megistus was studied after sequential heat and cold shocks in order to investigate shock tolerance compared to that previously reported for nymphs. Sequential shocks were such that a milder shock (0 degree C, 5 degrees C, 35 degrees C, or 40 degrees C for 1 h) preceded a severe one (0 degree C or 40 degrees C for 12 h), separated by intervals of 8, 18, 24, and 72 h at 28 degrees C (control temperature). The preliminary thermal shock induced tole…
