Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus are competent natural and laboratory vectors for numerous arthropod-borne viruses (arboviruses), many of which pose global public health concerns. Efficiently imbibing a blood meal from an artificial membrane feeder, Ae. aegypti is an easy feeder: ∼ 96% success. Alternatively, Ae. albopictus is known to be a difficult feeder imbibing poorly: ∼ 20% success. Adult female mosquitoes were grouped in cohorts of 50, proffered a bovine blood meal, and challenged with… CONTINUE READING
