Mosquito-Textile Physics: A Mathematical Roadmap to Insecticide-Free, Bite-Proof Clothing for Everyday Life

Insects, 12(7), 636.

By: K. Luan n, A. West*, M. McCord n, E. DenHartog*, Q. Shi*, I. Bettermann*, J. Li*, N. Travanty n ...

author keywords: mosquito; bite-proof garment; model; textile; non-insecticidal; physical barrier
TL;DR: A mathematical model for fabric barriers that resist bites from Aedes aegypti mosquitoes based on textile physical structure and no insecticides is reported, derived from mosquito morphometrics and analysis of mosquito biting behavior. (via Semantic Scholar)

Evidence of female sex pheromones and characterization of the cuticular lipids of unfed, adult male versus female blacklegged ticks, Ixodes scapularis


By: A. Carr n, D. Sonenshine*, J. Strider n & R. Roe n

author keywords: Ticks; Pheromones; Chemical communication; Reproduction; Cuticle; Cuticular lipids; Blacklegged tick; Ixodes scapularis; Lyme disease
MeSH headings : Animals; Female; Ixodes / chemistry; Ixodes / physiology; Lipids / analysis; Male; Sex Attractants / analysis
TL;DR: Bioassays determined that male mounting behavior/chelicerae insertion required direct contact with the female likely requiring non-volatile chemical cues with no evidence of a female volatile sex pheromone to attract males. (via Semantic Scholar)
