pipiens and Culex quinquefasciatus), Culex tarsalis, Culex stigmatosoma, Culex salinarius, Culex nigripalpus, and Culex restuans
have been implicated as urban vectors of WNV (Hayes et al.
Among the WNV-positive pools, 4,987 (75%) had species of Culex mosquitoes thought to be the principal vectors of WNV (e.g., Culex pipiens, Culex quinquefasciatus, Culex restuans
, Culex salinarius, and Culex tarsalis).
Oviposition preferences of Culex pipiens and Culex restuans for infusion-baited traps.
Oviposition preferences of Culex restuans and Culex pipens (Diptera: Culicidae) for selected infusions in oviposition traps and gravid traps.
The earliest species found positive for WNV were Aedes vexans, Culex pipiens, Culex restuans
, and Culex salinarius (Godsey et al., 2005).
The larvae were identified and found to belong to five species, namely, Anopheles punctipennis, Culex restuans
, Culex territans, Ochlerotatus atlanticus, and Psorophora columbiae.
Three species (Culex restuans
, Toxorhynchites rutilus septentrionalis, and Orthopodomyia signifera) were collected occasionally and only as isolated individuals.
A preliminary study of the seasonal geographic distribution and overwintering of Culex restuans
Theobald and Culex salinarius Coquillett (Diptera: Culicidae).
Of the 237 reported WNV-infected pools, 137 pools were Culex pipiens/restuans, 44 were Culex pipiens, 25 were Culex salinarius (23 from Staten Island, one from Bronx, and one from Queens, New York City), three were Culex restuans
, three were Aedes japonicus (Orange, Rockland, and Westchester counties, New York), three were Aedes vexans (Brooklyn and Staten Island), two were Aedes triseriatus (Staten Island), and one was Anopheles punctipennis (Staten Island).
Fourteen mosquito pools tested positive for WN virus: four pools of Culex restuans
, five pools of Cx.
pipiens and Culex restuans
were less abundant but were equal in number.
