However, because we were interested in evaluating Hemiptera known to bite humans, the families Belostomatidae, Naucoridae, and Nepidae
also were included, although each represented <2% of total collections.
Although we did not conduct aquatic sampling, seven aquatic and semi-aquatic families (Belostomatidae, Corixidae, Gelastocoridae, Gerridae, Hydrometridae, Nepidae
, and Notonectidae) were represented.
