Abstract This paper reports the results of a field experiment on Florida beach, Falmouth, Jamaica, in which continuous observations were made on the biting rates of Culicoides furens (Poey) (7 707 specimens) and C. barbosai Wirth & Blanton (3 793 specimens) over two 48-h sessions in January 1960. Catches were standardised by the use of correction factors previously calculated. The standardisation experiments also provided additional information on parts of the 24-h cycle, particularly sunrise and sunset.
