LIFE HISTORY AND HABITS OF THE PIGEON LOUSE1 (COLUMBICOLA COLUMBAE [LINNAEUS[)

  • Margaret Martin (a1)
Extract

Very little work has been done on the life history or habits of Mallophaga. Only two papers have heen published since 1913 which give even a general discussion of the life history of these parasites. The number of instars through which the insects pass was not determined in either case. For the experiments reported in this paper, the pigeon louse (Columbicola columbae [Linnaeus]) was chosen because of the ease of obtaining and handling the common host, Columba livia Linn.
