AbstractDeveloping optimal conditions for handling and transport of sterile male mosquitoes, prior to their release, is critical for the sterile insect technique (SIT) to be successful. No data currently exist for Anopheles arabiensis Patton (Diptera: Culicidae) concerning the effects of chilling at different temperatures and for different time lengths on subsequent survival. Additionally, it must be determined whether immobile mosquitoes are capable of producing metabolic heat, the maximum packing density in…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
