Aedes aegypti (L.) and Ae. albopictus (Skuse) from 40 sites in 17 counties of Florida were surveyed for gregarine parasites during the spring and autumn of 1993 and in July 1994. Larvae collected from containers (mainly tires) were dissected to determine the number of gregarine trophozoites present. Ascogregarina spp. were found at 70% of the sites and occurred as frequently in Ae. aegypti populations as in Ae. albopictus. Within sites, parasite distributions were highly variable and aggregated… CONTINUE READING
