Experimental assessment of bedbugs (Cimex lectularius and Cimex hemipterus) and mosquitoes (Aedes aegypti formosus) as vectors of human immunodeficiency virus



Experimental assessment of bedbugs (Cimex lectularius and Cimex hemipterus) and mosquitoes (Aedes aegypti formosus) as vectors of human immunodeficiency virus



Aids 1(3): 171-174



In vitro experiments were conducted to assess whether bedbugs (C. lectularius and C. hemipterus) and mosquitoes (A. aegypti formosus) could act as vectors of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). These insects engorged through a membrane on a blood-virus mixture. Female bedbugs were larger than males and took larger blood-meals when fed to repletion.
