[Mass tracing of Aedes vexans vexans by means of radioactive phosphorus for the study of their flight range from the breeding sites].

Abstract

In the valley of the Upper Yenisei IV instar larvae of A. vexans vexans were traced with 32P and then 1.86 mln imagos were released. Among 442 857 mosquitoes caught after hatching 243 were traced. Most of the traced individuals did not yet start looking for prey and were caught during the first five days near the hatching site. 14 radioactive females were caught within 4.5 km distance from the hatching site in the following weeks.
