Developing models for the forage ratios of Culiseta melanura
and Culex erraticus using species characteristics for avian hosts.
Identification of avian- and mammalian-derived bloodmeals in Aedes vexans and Culiseta melanura
(Diptera: Culicidae) and its implication for West Nile virus transmission in Connecticut, U.
Eastern Equine Culiseta melanura
Eastern seaboard, encephalitis (EEE) Gulf Coast, Midwest virus Western Equine Culex tarsalis; also Western U.
Intraspecific variation in key morphological characters of Culiseta melanura
Enzootic circulation of EEEV in eastern North America is primarily supported by a variety of avian reservoirs in the order Passeriformes and by the highly ornithophilic mosquito vector, Culiseta melanura
, in freshwater swamp habitats.
The Culex species is a WNV vector, and EEE involves several species of mosquito vectors, including Culiseta melanura
, a bird-biting mosquito.
Infection and transmission of Eastern equine encephlomyelitis virus with colonized Culiseta melanura
(Coquillett), the main enzootic vector of EEEV, breeds abundantly in these swamps (9).
