Figure 3

Effects of insemination and blood-feeding on the locomotor activity of Aedes aegypti (A) and Aedes albopictus (B). Locomotor activity of virgin/unfed (black line; n = 31 for Ae. aegypti and n = 28 for Ae. albopictus) and of inseminated/blood-fed (red line) Ae. aegypti females (A; n = 25) and (blue line) Ae. albopictus females (B; n = 26) exposed to two days of LD 12:12, at 25°C. First and second days represent, respectively, 48 and 72 hours after insemination and 24 and 48 hours after blood-feeding. White column represents the photophase and grey column the scothophase. Some reading time points exceeding the scale are indicated with letters, and their values are as follows: a = 27.57 (+6.81); b = 21.44 (+6.79).
