Parasites of the Asian tiger mosquito and other container-inhabiting mosquitoes (Diptera:Culicidae) in northcentral Florida.
Seven microorganisms including 4 protozoans, 2 fungi, and a bacterium infected Aedes albopictus (Skuse) larvae collected from 12 counties in northecentral Florida. Ae albopictus and 14 other speciesExpand
Some factors affecting parasitism by mermithid nematodes in southern house mosquito larvae.
Various factors affecting the use of a nematode Romanomermis sp., as a biological control agent of mosquitoes were studied. Almost 100% parasitism was obtained when the numbers of parasites in theExpand
Comparison of bi-directional Fay, omni-directional, CDC, and duplex cone traps for sampling adult Aedes albopictus and Aedes aegypti in north Florida.
Compared the number of Aedes albopictus and Aedes aegypti females collected in CDC, duplex cone, bi-directional Fay, and new omni- directional traps in a series of trials in northern Florida during 1992 and 1993, it is indicated that these traps may be useful tools for sampling Ae. Expand
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
Diximermis peterseni (Nematoda: Mermithidae): a potential biocontrol agent of Anopheles mosquito larvae.
Data indicate that D. peterseni can be easily established and will produce significant levels of parasitism despite long periods of dry weather and low host densities. Expand
Release of Romanomermis culicivorax for the control of Anopheles albimanus in El Salvador I. Mass production of the nematode.
The mosquito parasite, Romanomermis culicivorax, was mass produced for the treatment of Anopheles albimanus breeding area in El Salvador and produced an average 13.7 g of postparasitic nematodes per rearing tray for the 6-week period. Expand
