Abstract.  The mosquito Aedes (Stegomyia) albopictus (Skuse) (Diptera: Culicidae), originally indigenous to South‐east Asia, islands of the Western Pacific and Indian Ocean, has spread during recent decades to Africa, the mid‐east, Europe and the Americas (north and south) after extending its range eastwards across Pacific islands during the early 20th century. The majority of introductions are apparently due to transportation of dormant eggs in tyres. Among public health authorities in the… Expand
The asian tiger mosquito aedes albopictus in Switzerland : biology surveillance and control
The Asian tiger mosquito Aedes albopictus originates from the tropical and subtropical regions of Southeast Asia, from the islands of the Western Pacific and the Indian Ocean. Over the last century,Expand
Discovery of a Widespread Infestation of Aedes albopictus in the Torres Strait, Australia
TLDR
Aedes albopictus was detected on 10 islands and comprised 100% of the day-biting container-breeding mosquitoes on Yorke and Stephens Islands and was present in low densities in 2004 and that there were 3 genetically distinct mitochondrial haplotypes on YorKe Island in April 2005. Expand
Aedes (Stegomyia) albopictus--a dengue threat for southern Australia?
TLDR
According to predictions made using the CSIRO climate matching software CLIMEX, Ae. Expand
First record of the invasive mosquito species Aedes (Stegomyia) albopictus (Diptera: Culicidae) on the southernmost Mediterranean islands of Italy and Europe
TLDR
The detection of the Asian tiger mosquito on these islands, which represent the last European strip of land facing Africa, has important implications for public health policy and should prompt the national authorities to implement tailored surveillance activities and reinforce plans for preparedness strategies in such contexts. Expand
Geographical distribution of Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus (Diptera: Culicidae) and genetic diversity of invading population of Ae. albopictus in the Republic of the Congo.
TLDR
Aedes albopictus from Congo originated from other tropical Asian countries such as China, likely as a result of increasing trade links and can serve as a foundation for further research on these vectors in the country. Expand
Geographical distribution of Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus (Diptera: Culicidae) and genetic diversity of invading population of Ae. albopictus in the Republic of the Congo
TLDR
Aedes albopictus from Congo originated from other tropical Asian countries such as China, likely as a result of increasing trade links and can serve as a foundation for further research on these vectors in the country. Expand
Vector Competence of Aedes albopictus Populations from the Northeastern United States for Chikungunya, Dengue, and Zika Viruses
ABSTRACT The Asian tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus) is an important vector of a number of arboviruses, including Zika (ZIKV), dengue (DENV), and chikungunya (CHIKV) viruses, and has recentlyExpand
Genetic Structure of the Tiger Mosquito, Aedes albopictus, in Cameroon (Central Africa)
Background Aedes albopictus (Skuse, 1884) (Diptera: Culicidae), a mosquito native to Asia, has recently invaded all five continents. In Central Africa it was first reported in the early 2000s, andExpand
Discriminable roles of Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus in establishment of dengue outbreaks in Taiwan.
Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus were reported to be significant as vectors of dengue fever. In Taiwan, the latter is distributed throughout the island while the former appears only south of theExpand

Analysis of Northern Distribution of Aedes albopictus (Diptera: Culicidae) in Japan by Geographical Information System
Abstract Aedes albopictus (Skuse), a mosquito vector of the dengue fever virus, is prevalent in Japan, distributed widely in Honshu Island with its northern limits between latitude 38° to 40°degreesExpand
[Aedes albopictus in Italy and possible diffusion of the species into the Mediterranean area].
TLDR
The present record, together with the previous report of Ae albopictus in Albania, clearly supports the hypothesis of a spreading of the species in the Mediterranean area. Expand
Vector Competence of North American Mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) for West Nile Virus
TLDR
The potential for several North American mosquito species to transmit the newly introduced West Nile (WN) virus is evaluated, and laboratory vector competence, host-feeding preferences, relative abundance, and season of activity determine the role that these species could play in transmitting WN virus. Expand

TLDR
This is the first record of breeding populations of Ae. Expand
Aedes albopictus is a natural vector of Dirofilaria immitis in Italy.
TLDR
The hypothesis that the presence of the mosquito could affect the transmission pattern of canine heartworm disease in urban environment and, considering the aggressive anthropophylic behaviour of the species, could enhance the circulation of filarial nematodes from animals to humans is supported.
