This paper describes the process of expanding a successful dengue control program in 3 provinces in northern Vietnam into a national one and demonstrates the presence of a rich, low-cost resource that could have similar applicability to other countries in the region. [...] Key Result pehpeiensis Hu, and M. dissimilis Defaye and Kawabata) were found in natural and artificial habitats in 26 provinces throughout Vietnam. The predatory capacities of 6 of these were evaluated in the laboratory.Expand
Control of aedes vectors of dengue in three provinces of Vietnam by use of Mesocyclops (Copepoda) and community-based methods validated by entomologic, clinical, and serological surveillance.
Variable dengue attack rates made the clinical and serological comparison of control and untreated communes problematic, but these data indicate that clinical surveillance by itself is inadequate to monitor d Dengue transmission. Expand
Climate Change May Restrict the Predation Efficiency of Mesocyclops aspericornis (Copepoda: Cyclopidae) on Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae) Larvae
The results suggest that the increase in mosquitoes will not be suppressed solely by the application of copepods if the density of mosquito larvae is high or ambient temperature is high, and need to consider additional control methods in order to maintain the efficiency ofcopepods to suppress mosquito increase.

New strategy against Aedes aegypti in Vietnam
Findings suggest that this mosquito control strategy is sustainable in Vietnam and applicable where the major sources of A aegypti are large water storage containers. Expand
Elimination of Dengue by Control of Aedes Vector Mosquitoes ( Diptera : Culicidae ) Utilizing Copepods ( Copepoda : Cyclopidae )
This paper reports on the information and result of long-term laboratory and field studies on copepods (Copepoda: Cyclopidae) as predators for mosquito control inhabiting in tropic and subtropicExpand
Elimination of dengue by community programs using Mesocyclops(Copepoda) against Aedes aegypti in central Vietnam.
This study demonstrates that this community-based program for dengue control using local predacious copepods of the genus Mesocyclops is broadly acceptable and achievable at community level but vigilance is required post-project to prevent reinfestation. Expand
Native Argentinean cyclopoids (Crustacea: Copepoda) as predators of Aedes aegypti and Culex pipiens (Diptera: Culicidae) mosquitoes.
Copepods from La Plata, Argentina were investigated to characterize the local community of larvivorous copepods inhabiting mosquito breeding sites and to identify new predator species of theExpand
Field trial on a novel control method for the dengue vector, Aedes aegypti by the systematic use of Olyset® Net and pyriproxyfen in Southern Vietnam
This study showed that the treatment by Olyset® Net and pyriproxyfen had a strong negative effect on the prevalence of immature Ae. Expand
[Characterization of Aedes albopictus (Skuse, 1894) (Diptera:Culicidae) larval habitats near the Amazon River in Colombia].
INTRODUCTION Because the role of Aedes albopictus as an incriminated vector of several viral pathogens, its control is important to human health. To establish appropriate control methods,Expand
The Importance of Subterranean Mosquito Habitat to Arbovirus Vector Control Strategies in North Queensland, Australia
It is proposed that a winter control strategy using Mesocyclops presents a cost-effective control option to reduce the recolonization of surface sites when conditions become more suitable. Expand

Evaluation of Australian Mesocyclops (Cyclopoida: Cyclopidae) for mosquito control.
M. aspericornis (L. Kurwongbah) proved to be the most effective Queensland predator and exhibited an elevated reproductive rate at 20-25 degrees C and has been selected for small-scale field trials in Queensland. Expand
Eradication of Aedes aegypti from a village in Vietnam, using copepods and community participation.
In northern Vietnam, copepods of the genus Mesocyclops were used for biological control of Aedes aegypti, the principal vector of dengue viruses, by inoculation into wells, large cement tanks,Expand
Aedes aegypti control in the Lao People's Democratic Republic, with reference to copepods.
This study indicates that predacious copepods will be accepted by the community and could be integrated as a low-cost, persistent control agent into new strategies for improving surveillance and control of dengue vectors. Expand
Use of cyclopoid copepods for mosquito control
Field trials in a Spartina marsh, rice fields, and residential roadside ditches in Louisiana suggest that M. longisetus and M. albidus could be of use to control larvae of Anopheles spp. Expand
Understanding productivity, a key to Aedes aegypti surveillance.
It is demonstrated that there is a certain degree of stability with regard to positive premises and that some of these, or some container types, contribute disproportionately to the Ae. Expand
Calibrated funnel trap for quantifying mosquito (Diptera: Culicidae) abundance in wells.
Because of its simplicity, efficacy, and inexpensiveness, the Vietrap will facilitate the comprehensive assessment of key larval habitats for Ae. Expand
Breeding places and seasonal incidence of Aedes aegypti, as assessed by the single-larva survey method.
The single-larva survey method was employed to study the breeding places and seasonal incidence of Aedes aegypti in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and the seasonal prevalence, expressed as a container index, closely followed and paralleled the fluctuations in rainfall. Expand

It is concluded that information available at present is insufficient to interpret the Ae. Expand
Aedes aegypti (L.) and Aedes albopictus (Skuse) in Singapore City. 2. Larval habitats.
It is concluded that control of the two species will depend largely on a change in such habits, either through public health education or by some form of law enforcement. Expand
