Dad used the data from the light trap collections to create a graph that demonstrated significant declines in many species of pest mosquitoes, specifically the two salt marsh species, Aedes taeniorhynchus
(Wiedemann) and Aedes sollicitans (Walker) (Diptera: Culicidae).
Culex quinquefasciatus, furthermore, it was one of the most toxic pesticides for Anopheles quadrimaculatus and Aedes taeniorhynchus
. However, the known tolerance and safety of Imidacloprid in some insect predators, such as Coccinella septempunctata (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) is powerful advantages with respect to non-target organism concerns and for environmental impact issues .
In the study, 10 different insecticides were combined with a sucrose solution and fed to females of three mosquito species--Culex quinquefasciatus, which transmits West Nile virus; Anopheles quadrimaculatus, a malaria vector; and Aedes taeniorhynchus
, an important pest and vector of some arboviruses.
