Introduction In certain parts of Africa, notably Swaziland and Southern Rhodesia, the application of residual insecticides to houses has led t o an apparent change in behaviour of the main vector of malaria, Anopheles gambiae Giles, from resting indoors and biting man to r e ~ t i n go utdoors and feeding on c a t t l e or other animals. Two explanations have been advanced for this situation: (a) that two sibling species of the A. gambiae complex may originally have been present i n the area, one of which was eliminated owing t o its domestic habits and consequent greater opportunity of coming into contact with chemically treated surfaces; (b) that there has been a change in behaviour within a single species due to selection by the insect i c i d e (Paterson e t a1 ., 1963). Active research into the validity of the f i r s t possibility is going on a t present, the available evidence suggesting that in t h i s area, a t least, there has been a replacement of one form of the A. ganibiae complex by another (Paterson e t a1.,1963). However, the possibility of the occurrence of true behauioural changes within a single form of the species canriot be ignored, and with t h i s object in mind an attempt was made t o a l t e r the feeding preferences of the species by a r t i f i c i a l selection in the laboratory,
