These species are Aedes atlanticus, Aedes mitchellae, Aedes sollicitans, Aedes taeniorhynchus, Coquillettidia perturbans, and Culex nigripalpus
. Despite extensive larval and adult collection efforts during 1996 to 1998, no specimens of these six species were found.
Aedes taeniorhynchus and Culex nigripalpus
were the predominant mosquito species in the area.
