Growth characteristics of chimerivax DEN2 vaccine virus in Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus
The individual time budgets for each of the three species studied, Anopheles stephensi (Table 2), Aedes albopictus
(Table 3) and Culex pipiens (Table 4) showed significant differences in the mean time spent in some behavioural states but not in others.
It was further assumed that aedes albopictus
mosquitoes had a flight range of one kilometer (27) and that, because of the random mixing assumption of the model, the populations [N.sub.h] and [N.sub.v] represented population densities per sq.
japonicus were found typically contained specimens of Culex pipiens and Aedes albopictus
potentially interacts with a number of other container-dwelling mosquitoes.
, generally bite during nighttime and they thrive in grassy areas
More than a billion people may be exposed to the danger of being bitten by the two most common disease-carrying mosquitoes -- Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus
-- by the end of this century because of global warming.
has been reported as a vector of dengue in American countries such as Brazil (de Figueiredo et al., 2010) and Mexico (Ibanez-Bernal et al., 1997), and showed to be a competent vector of chikungunya (Vazeille et al., 2007).
However, Aedes albopictus
is also present in some Caribbean countries (11, 12).
Skuse (Diptera: Culicidae) is currently considered to be one of the most invasive human disease vectors globally, and has expanded its habitat from Southeast Asia and the Indian Ocean islands to eastern Asia, northeast Europe, the Middle East, and the Americas (Benedict et al.
The contact toxicity of these derivatives toward Musca domestica by topical application and Aedes albopictus
by immersion method was investigated.
(3) Aedes albopictus
is one of the most medically important mosquito because of the number of pathogens it may transmit and its status as the most invasive mosquito species in the world.
Chikungunya virus is most often spread to people by Aedes albopictus
Por este motivo resulta de interes compartir con los lectores de la revista MedUNAB la experiencia de la primera evidencia de Aedes albopictus
en el departamento del Putumayo y mostrar como a traves de la vigilancia entomologica liderada por el Laboratorio de Salud Publica y con el apoyo de auxiliares del Programa de Enfermedades Transmitidas por vectores (ETV), de la Secretaria de Salud del departamento del Putumayo y del Instituto Nacional de Salud (INS) se determino la especie.
