Although Aedes aegypti (L.) are capable of some wavelength discrimination, behavioral experiments demonstrated that color was not a stimulus to which they responded. Optical stimuli that did affect Ae. aegypti behavior were luminous reflectance, vertical contrast, and movement. Stationary objects of low reflectance and solid color were the most attractive to males and females.
