Abstract:

Further studies were carried out on the electronic recording method for the detection of mosquito biting activity described in AD-614 970, and new applications for this apparatus were conceived and tested. New experimental approaches to the development of a systemically effective insect repellent were also conceived, and preliminary tests of the feasibility of these approaches were begun by utilizing the electronic method. A rescreening program of some known mosquito repellents with the electronic apparatus was also initiated.
