Background: In a recent unpublished research paper under review, it was demonstrated that insects (mosquitoes) maintain electromagnetic magnetic profiles (EMFs) and are piezoelectric.  Also proposed in the same report was that EMFs are present during host finding and under skin blind blood feeding by detecting blood vessels. The purpose of this report is to demonstrate that the human blood also maintains intrinsic piezoelectric properties, thus also proposed to play a role in guiding the mosquitos’ blind feeding maneuvers.

Materials and Methods: By utilizing a standard small sterile needle, two small drops of fresh blood from the author’s distal finger were placed in the center of a 25x75x1mm clean glass slide. The blood was then “sandwiched” (SDW) by covering the first slide with a similar one. One intact freshly plucked abdominal periumbilical hair was placed in the center of the top slide n=4. Immediately, via a small pipette, two drops of distilled water were carefully aimed and delivered covering the follicle and adjacent distal hair. The SDW was then examined with an optical video microscope. Still pictures and video-recordings were done of the follicle while the depth of focus point was slowly changed in and outwards from the focused follicle. Images were then photographed and interpreted. Control experiments were done with hairs mounted on distilled water SDWs.

Results: Several patterns representing different magnetic profiles were observed. Depending on the focus depth, the images changed as to reflect changing magnetic profiles detected in separate layers on the slide containing the hair. They ranged from zero profile while focusing on the follicle, to a cyclotron resonance pattern, to linear Lorentz Forces, as well as linear distortions caused by the Hall effect. The control experiments (zero blood drops in SDW) were void of any magnetic profiles.

Conclusions: In this report we are demonstrating in a glass slide assembly the magnetic profiles from the interactions between blood, hair and/or mosquito proboscis This was possible because the hair, proboscis and blood maintain magnetic profiles and are piezoelectric, i.e. convert EM oscillations to mechanical vibrations and vice versa.  

Implications: It was demonstrated the presence of reciprocal electromagnetic interactions between tissues maintaining piezoelectric characteristics, thus supporting the hypothesis of biomagnetism as a factor in insects such as mosquitoes during the blood feeding process.
