The story behind a Bull Ent Res Paper

There is apparently considerable discussion about early biting shifts in mosquitoes like An. arabiensis.  (Why this might be so I hope to describe below – but be warned in a recent submission a referee questioned the number of Charlwood references quoted – I had to reply well they are really the only ones I know, and no one reads them anymore so why not – a bit like insinuating an obscure word that no one has ever read before into a text! - so you might at least know what to expect if I write anymore of them. i.e.
