BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES The quality of breeding sites is reflected through the pupal productivity and the life history traits of Aedes mosquitoes. Using nutrient reserves and pupal productivity of Aedes as indicators, the larval habitats including sewage drains were characterized to highlight the habitat expansion and vector management. METHODS The pupae and adults collected from the containers and sewage drains were characterized in terms of biomass and nutrient reserves and the data were… CONTINUE READING
