oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Anopheles merus (Donitz) its biting cycle in relation to environmental parameters
The biting cycle of A. merus (Donitz) was investigated and clearly showed the presence of an endogenous rhythm. Under optimal conditions of wind, rain and temperature this cycle compares well with that shown for the A. gambiae s.l. However, wind speed, rain and possibly temperature affect the cycle.
