Oviposition Responses of the Mosquitoes Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus to Experimental Plant Infusions in Laboratory Bioassays

Journal of Chemical Ecology, 36(7), 709–719.

author keywords: Aedes aegypti; Aedes albopictus; Oviposition; Attractants; Plant infusion; Fermentation; Microbe-insect interactions
MeSH headings : Aedes / physiology; Animals; Behavior, Animal; Biomass; Female; Fermentation; Oviposition; Plant Leaves / chemistry; Poaceae / chemistry; Quercus / chemistry; Time Factors
TL;DR: Both mosquito species were more attracted to a non-sterile white oak leaf infusion than to white oak Leaf infusion that was prepared using sterilized plant material and water, thus suggesting a role for microbial activity in the production of odorants that mediate the oviposition response of gravid mosquitoes.
