Effects of temperature on the transmission of West Nile virus by Culex tarsalis
On July 14, population of Culex tarsalis
, an important vector of western equine encephalitis, were at extremely high levels (176 Cx.
Collections were processed on a chill table and the light trap index (LTI) was calculated for each week as the number of trapped Culex tarsalis
mosquitoes per trap night.
The absence of WEE cases in the outbreak is especially perplexing because SLE and WEE are transmitted by Culex tarsalis
mosquitoes in the rural West and share a similar summer amplification cycle involving birds [1,3,4,8].
Impact of aerial spraying of pyrethrin insecticide on Culex pipiens and Culex tarsalis
(Diptera: Culicidae) abundance and West Nile virus infection rates in an urban/suburban area of Sacramento County, California.
Second, spatial patterns of distribution and abundance of the mosquito Culex tarsalis
, which is considered the primary vector to humans of WNV in the western United States, are related to both climatic conditions and suitable mosquito larval habitats (13,14,24-28).
The dominant WNV vector mosquito species are Culex tarsalis
