Larval Mosquito Habitat Utilization and Community Dynamics of Aedes albopictus and Aedes japonicus (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
Examination of types and characteristics of containers that are most productive for container-inhabiting mosquitoes in the northeastern United States suggested many variables can influence the presence of Ae.
Longitudinal Studies of Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae) in Thailand and Puerto Rico: Blood Feeding Frequency
TLDR
Rates of multiple feeding were associated positively with temperature and negatively with mosquito size in Thailand, but not in Puerto Rico, and may be associated with variation in patterns of dengue virus transmission.
A human health perspective on climate change: a report outlining the research needs on the human health effects of climate change
TLDR
This report identifies gaps in knowledge of the consequences for climate change and warns of potential risks to human health of climate change-related adverse events.
Making Mosquito Taxonomy Useful: A Stable Classification of Tribe Aedini that Balances Utility with Current Knowledge of Evolutionary Relationships
The tribe Aedini (Family Culicidae) contains approximately one-quarter of the known species of mosquitoes, including vectors of deadly or debilitating disease agents. This tribe contains the genus
Longitudinal Studies of Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae) in Thailand and Puerto Rico: Population Dynamics
TLDR
The results indicated that aspects of this species’ biology can vary significantly from one location to another and 1 yr to the next in Aedes aegypti.
Insect Repellents : Principles, Methods, and Uses
TLDR
This work focuses on the development and use of Insect Repellents for human use in the developing world and investigates the combination of N,N-Diethyl Phenylacetamide and Deet, a Multi-Insect Repellent, and the risks and benefits of using either of these substances in conjunction with each other.
Dengue and its vectors in Thailand: calculated transmission risk from total pupal counts of Aedes aegypti and association of wing-length measurements with aspects of the larval habitat.
TLDR
A phased approach to sampling immature aedine mosquitoes in Thailand is proposed, which would consist of routine surveillance of larval index and occasional total counts with measurement of wing size, indicating that the larval population as a whole was under nutritional stress.
Area-wide management of Aedes albopictus. Part 2: gauging the efficacy of traditional integrated pest control measures against urban container mosquitoes.
TLDR
There are significant socioeconomic and climatic differences between urban and suburban sites that impact upon Ae.
The past and present threat of rickettsial diseases to military medicine and international public health.
TLDR
The threat posed by the rickettsioses is reviewed, focusing on the impact and epidemiology of those that have adversely influenced wartime operations and the current challenges posed by these diseases.
