Annual emergence patterns of Culex nigripalpus females before, during and after a widespread St. Louis encephalitis epidemic in south Florida



Annual emergence patterns of Culex nigripalpus females before, during and after a widespread St. Louis encephalitis epidemic in south Florida



Journal of the American Mosquito Control Association 9(3): 249-255



Resting C. nigripalpus females were collected from the same site (in Indian River County, Florida, USA) at least 3 times a week from January 1986 to December 1991. Newly emerged mosquitoes were used to monitor annual emergence patterns that were rainfall driven. Four of the years, 1986-89, preceded the 1990 St. Louis encephalitis (SLE) epidemic in south Florida. The pre-epidemic period averaged 4 emergences per year, with most occurring during July and August.
