Background: Previously, bio-electromagnetism in living plant tissue was detected for the first time by means of sensitive magnetic magnetometer. Subsequently, this finding was confirmed when bioelectromagnetic fields (BMFs) of plant tissue were also detected by a novel optical microscopy approach. Additionally, BMFs were also documented in the human hair. Introduced is the cross-species BMFs similarity of body parts (hairs) between Humans and Insects.

Materials and Methods: A solution was prepared utilizing Prussian Blue Stain (PBS) and nanosized iron particles 2000 nanometers in diameter (2K). The PBS included two parts of Potassium Ferricyanide (Fe3), one part of HCl 2.5% and one part of the 2K iron particles. This formula will be referred as   (PBS Fe3 2K) throughout the manuscript.. Adult mosquitoes and larvae were placed on separate glass slides and covered by two drops of PBS Fe3 2K and allowed to evaporate. Images recorded. The same method was used by placing ex vivo plucked human hairs. Images also recorded. Equipment used:  After evaporation, images were viewed and recorded in the normal mode (no filters) x10 and x40 magnifications. Equipment used was a video-microscope (Celestron LCD Digital Microscope II model #44341, Torrance, California, USA). All pictures downloaded and labeled by using a MacBook Apple computer and Apple Inc. iPhoto 8.1.2, Application.

Results: In this manuscript similarity in BMFs emitted by hairs of the Mosquito Larva (Culex quinquefasciatus) and Humans were documented. Upon evaporation, crystals were detected randomly adhering to some areas of the mosquito’s antenna, wing tips, distal legs and proboscis and the larva’s siphon and hairs, thus proving the presence of bioelectromagnetic forces. Similar results were seen on the human hairs samples.

Discussion: It should be noted that the attraction of a magnetic substance to a body part must be based upon electromagnetic interaction. Different parts could exhibit different magnetic profiles depending on factors such as, circadian rhythmicity, and polarity to attract substances susceptible to said interaction. This principle applies to insects and Humans. The basis is always piezoelectricity or electromagnetic induction. This effect was discovered in 1880 by the brothers Pierre and Paul-Jacques Curie.
