Abstract

Hesperocimex reared in permanent and electromagnets (Hemiptera: Cimicidae) by Raymond E. Ryckman and Robert D. Sjogren, Bull. Southern California Acad. Sci., 80(2):90-93, 1981. The continuous culture of 3 generations of Hesperocimex bugs in a permanent magnet at 4000 gauss and in an electro- magnet at 14,000 gauss did not result in any identifiable mutations. Control and experimental colonies were prolific; fecundity and fertility were not impaired by the experimental conditions.
