The global distribution of the arbovirus vectors Aedes aegypti and Ae. albopictus
This work compile the largest contemporary database for both species and pair it with relevant environmental variables predicting their global distribution, showing Aedes distributions to be the widest ever recorded; now extensive in all continents, including North America and Europe. Expand
Aedes albopictus in the United States: ten-year presence and public health implications.
Since its discovery in Houston, Texas, in 1987, the Asian "tiger mosquito" Aedes albopictus has spread to 678 counties in 25 states, and there is no evidence that this mosquito is the vector of human disease in the United States. Expand
The global compendium of Aedes aegypti and Ae. albopictus occurrence
Aedes aegypti and Ae. albopictus are the main vectors transmitting dengue and chikungunya viruses. Despite being pathogens of global public health importance, knowledge of their vectors’ globalExpand
Reported Distribution of Aedes (Stegomyia) aegypti and Aedes (Stegomyia) albopictus in the United States, 1995-2016 (Diptera: Culicidae).
The findings underscore the need for systematic surveillance of Ae. Expand
La Crosse Encephalitis Virus Habitat Associations in Nicholas County, West Virginia
Aedes triseriatusoviposition patterns and La Crosse virus infection rates suggest that this mosquito species disperses readily in the large woodlands of central West Virginia. Expand

Since its initial discovery in the continental USA in 1985, the Asian tiger mosquito, Aedes albopictus, has spread rapidly throughout the eastern part of the country. Infestations of Ae. albopictusExpand
Insect-specific flaviviruses from Culex mosquitoes in Colorado, with evidence of vertical transmission.
Mosquitoes were collected in Colorado during 2006 and 2007 to examine spatial and seasonal patterns of risk for exposure to Culex vectors and West Nile virus, which led to the detection and subsequent isolation of two insect-specific flaviviruses: CuleX flavivirus (CxFV), which was first described from Japan, and a novel insect flaviv virus, designated Calbertado virus (CLBOV, which has also been detected in California and Canada.

Importation of Aedes albopictus and other exotic mosquito species into the United States in used tires from Asia.
Between May 18 and December 4, 1986, 79 seagoing containers and their contents of 22,051 used tires were inspected for adult mosquitoes as well as eggs and larvae. Of the total inspected, 5,507 tiresExpand
