Data on the powers of dispersal of two Diptera of medical interest: Aedes africanus (Theobald) and Simulium damnosum Theobald in the mountain region of northern West Cameroon



Data on the powers of dispersal of two Diptera of medical interest: Aedes africanus (Theobald) and Simulium damnosum Theobald in the mountain region of northern West Cameroon



Cahiers ORSTOM, Serie Entomologie Medicale et Parasitologie 10(4): 291-300



The powers of upstream dispersal of Aedes africanus (Theo.) in the mountainous northern area of the West Cameroon were investigated in 1970-71 in studies in which females marked with ultraviolet fluorescent powders were released in the general area in which they had been collected. Recaptures over a period of nine days showed that the females can travel about 3 kg in 4-8 days in the wet season.
