Mandelonitrile attraction/repellence in male and female adults of Lutzomyia longipalpis. The number of flies on both sides of the cage was registered 1, 2, 3 and 4 h after the release of flies. The results only after 4 h of experiment are shown, as there were no significant differences along time. No significant difference between groups was observed (t-test). Results are presented are the mean ± SD of four biological replicates with 20 insects each. Abbreviations: CS: control experiment, sugar side (big chamber); CNS: control experiment, no sugar side (small chamber); MS: mandelonitrile experiment, sugar side (big chamber); MNS: mandelonitrile experiment, no sugar side (small chamber)
