She did a similar experiment to see if infertile sperm delay remating in fruit flies.

Indeed, male scorpion flies serve more than a hearty meal to their mates - females who copulate beyond 20 minutes receive accessory gland proteins, which directly increase male reproductive success by depressing female remating rate (reviewed in Thornhill and Alcock 1983).
