Biological Control of Mosquitoes
Host-parasite relationships of some Thelohania from mosquitoes (Nosematidae: Microsporidia)
Parasites of the genus Thelohania were studied in 16 species of mosquitoes in California and four basic types of host-parasite relationships have been observed, with most individuals (75–85 percent) with progressive infections are males. Expand
Laboratory studies with the mosquito iridescent virus (MIV).
The regular mosquito iridescent virus and a blue MIV of Aedes taeniorhynchus were serially passed through 68 and 30 generations, respectively, of larvae of A. taeniorschus, and attempts to transmit MIV to larvae of nine species of mosquitoes not known to be hosts of MIV were successful only with Aedes sollicitans.

Release of Romanomermis culicivorax for the control of Anopheles albimanus in El Salvador II. Application of the nematode.
The mosquito breeding area of Lake Apastepeque, El Salvador, was treated 11 times over a 7-week period with Romanomermis culicivorax to control Anopheles albimanus and An. p. pseudopunctipennis.Expand
Host-parasite relationships of Thelohania associated with mosquitoes in louisiana (Nosematidae: Microsporidia)☆
Parasites of the genus Thelohania were studied in 13 species of mosquitoes collected from two parishes in southwestern Louisiana, establishing new host records for Aedes grossbecki and Anopheles bradleyi. Expand
