Mosquitoes are drawn to flowers as much as people — and now scientists know why - UW News

Platanthera obtusata, grows in cool, high-latitude climates across the Northern Hemisphere. From field stations in the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest in Washington state, Riffell’s team verified past research showing that local mosquitoes pollinate this species, but not its close relatives that grow in the same habitat. When researchers covered the flowers with bags — depriving the mosquitoes of a visual cue for the flower — the mosquitoes would still land on the bagged flowers and attempt to feed through the canvas. Orchid scent obviously attracted the mosquitoes. To find out why, Riffell’s team turned to the individual chemicals that make up the blunt-leaf orchid’s scent. “We often describe ‘scent’ as if it’s one thing — like the scent of a flower, or the scent of a person,” said Riffell. “Scent is actually a complex combination of chemicals — the scent of a rose consists of more than 300 — and mosquitoes can detect the individual types of chemicals that make up a scent.” img class="size-medium wp-image-65747" src="https://s3-us...

The team used gas chromatography and mass spectroscopy to identify dozens of chemicals in the scents of the Platanthera species. Compared to its relatives, the blunt-leaf orchid’s scent contained high amounts of a compound called nonanal, and smaller amounts of another chemical, lilac aldehyde. Using a gas chromatogram to separate the individual chemicals that make up a flower’s scent while simultaneously recording electrical activity from a mosquito’s antenna to see which chemicals stimulate the mosquito’s antenna. Credit: Kiley Riffell Riffell’s team also recorded the electrical activity in mosquito antennae, which detect scents. Both nonanal and lilac aldehyde stimulated antennae of mosquitoes that are native to the blunt-leaf orchid’s habitat. But these compounds also stimulated the antennae of mosquitoes from other regions, including ...

Leaves are falling all around. Time you were on your way to a regional show garden - Tacoma News Tribune

Wenatchee Ohme Gardens: rocks, groundcovers, pools and alpine plants A drive over the pass can be a beautiful change of scenery, and, often in October, a sunny escape from autumn rains. This year the nationally acclaimed Ohme Gardens just outside of Chelan near Wenatchee is celebrating 90 years of mountaintop serenity and a celebration of what humans can grow on a rocky hillside. The story of the indomitable Ohme family that created the gardens (by hand with little money) lives on now that the place is managed by Chelan County. A popular site for weddings, concerts and group tours, there is a $8 charge to enter the gardens, but the views and inspiration are priceless. On a recent visit we had the gardens almost to ourselves and hiked the stone steps to view fish ponds carved into rock, wishing wells and rustic lookout towers built into the hillside. There are assorted outbuildings made from rustic cedar and burl wood that lend a magical storybook quality to this unusual garden. No wonder they offer a fairy hunt to visitors. The spring season is when the thyme, wildflowers and hardy groundcovers offer more color, but fall is the season of cool, green mountain magic. Visit www.ohmegardens.org for more information. Federal Way Rhododendron Species Garden: Fall foliage, plant sales and a huge conservatory There is more than rhododendrons in this garden just off of I-5. For seekers of bargains and cool wild plants, the annual plant sale and festival will be held the weekend of Oct. 19-20. This is the same weekend that the garden waives the $8 entrance fee, so not only can you purchase unusual native groundcovers, perennials and of course wild or species rhododendrons from all over the world, but you can explore the grounds and get to know the best trees and shrubs for fall color in our climate. Don’t miss the gigantic glass conservatory with tree-sized tropical rhododendrons and spectacular water features. The shaded woodland trails are peaceful any time of the year. I am...

Flowers gone, Daffodil spirit still carries on

Seafair without the boats, or Wenatchee’s Apple Blossom Festival without the featured fruit.It’s no secret that some bloom has been off the Daffodil Festival for a while. Over the years, The News Tribune has lamented lower attendance and financial support. But we contend this staple of spring should live on. Once upon a time the Daffodil Festival put us on the map. Life Magazine and National Geographic did pictorials of the endless yellow fields, the freckle-faced kids lining the parade route, the royal court doing their slow wax-on, wax-off princess waves.Though a league of faithful volunteers still keeps the festival going, the tradition will never be quite what it was. But that’s not all bad news.Consider this lead from a 1964 Tacoma News Tribune story on the festival’s princesses: “Judges, like other gentlemen, prefer blondes…tall, lovely blondes.” The article went on to describe the physical features of some of the 17-year-old princesses vying to be queen.In an age of women who run companies or run for president, anything that resembles a cattle-auction beauty pageant is cringe-worthy. Even the Miss America pageant knows enough to call itself a scholarship pageant.In Pierce County, the ambassadorial role of the Daffodil Court has remained steadfast for 84 years. Requirements include ac... (The News Tribune)
