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