Antilles Abovenormal shower activity clouds and moderate winds were To bite or not to bite Mosquitoes are finicky By CAROLINA ADAMS mosqui toes will bite a warm billiard ball but they prefer people And they prefer some people to others Department of Agriculture entomologists have found that mosquitoes seldom bite certain individuals but frequently attack others Researchers have studied every thing from folklore to metabolism in an effort to discover why mos quitoes are finicky in their biting habits the National Geographic Society says THE MAN WHO says mosqui toes never bother him because he smokes cigars is to a point A pungent cigar may repel a stray mosquito buzzing around a screened porch The same cigar however would not deter a swarm of mosquitoes Carbon dioxide warmth and moisture apparently are the prime mosqtuto lures The insects gen erally are attracted more to dark than light colors Thin persons are favored targets because they have a higher metabolic rate and release more heat than others One entomologist observed that a pale motionless man in a white suit could avoid all annoyance from mosquitoes provided he stop ped breathing Exhaled breath contains carbon dioxide which is catnip to mosquitoes MOSQUITOES demand the amount of carbon dioxide given off in more One researcher found that dummies drenched in the gas had no ap peal for some species When the gas was exhaled mechanically at a normal breathing rate the fig ures drew mosquitoes In another experiment a man was placed in a small room with three dummies and 300 mosqui toes He was dressed in a light weight diving suit that kept water vapor carbon dioxide and other gases from escaping His breath was drawn from outside the room through a hose The mosquitoes apparently could I ell no difference between the man and the dummies When car bon dioxide was discharged above the mans head however he at tracted more mosquitoes The pests also were lured when an ordinary cloth suit was put over the diving suit Species vary in their favorite biting targets Aedes aegypti the dreaded yellow fever carrier pre fers the body while Aedes lae niorhynchus is lured to the face The variation indicates that cer tain species of mosquitoes may be attracted to man and animals for different reasons A FILIPINO experimenter found that subjects who ale bananas appealed to mosquitoes The in sects apparently crave two chem icals found in the fruit as well as in blood and are equipped with sensitive detectors that enable them to sniff out faint banana odors in perspiration Only female mosquitoes bite An entomologist describes the male of most species as an inoffen sive little insect whose diet is nectar and about whose only func tion is propagation Females of many species need blood to enable their eggs to ma ture and they have a diabolically efficient system of getting it Equipped with a complex sharp proboscis that holds six piercing organs a female mosquito can easily drill through the skin of her prey until a capillary is reached The female then injects a saliva thai breaks down the blood The fluid also causes the itch that ac companies the bite and transmits any disease the insect may be carrying reported from the area Weather officials said overall conditions were not favorable for hurricane development but Navy hurricane patrol planes were to make a thorough aerial investigation A TIROS project officer said Tiros III probably would pass over the disturbance zone and there was a possibility its two television cameras would obtain pictures of the potential storm A ThorDelta rocket boosted the meteorological satellite into an orbit ranging from 46074 to 50652 miles above the earth It circles the globe once every 100 minutes On its first pass Tiros III trans mitted 35 pictures showing cloud cover formation over Newfound land the Gulf of St Lawrence and the St Lawrence Valley re gion OFFICIALS WERE mum how ever about the Midas satellite launched Wednesday
