Synthetic sex-aggregation pheromone of Lutzomyia longipalpis, the South American sand fly vector of Leishmania infantum, attracts males and females over long-distance
Number of recaptured Lu. longipalpis sand flies trapped at different distances from the release point in household (A) and household (B). The mean ± SD sand flies (males + females) for each distance from the release point was calculated from a total of two replicates (corresponding to the experiments marked with lime and pink fluorescent powders). The mean numbers of recaptured sand flies shown in bars with the same letters were not significantly different from each other (P < 0.05).
