Invasion of cemeteries in Florida by Aedes albopictus


Journal of the American Mosquito Control Association 8(1): 1-10
Invasion of cemeteries in Florida by Aedes albopictus
Aedes albopictus has been found in 53 of the 67 Florida counties. The initial discoveries in 11 of these counties were made in cemeteries. At several locations, Ae. albopictus became well-established in cemeteries before appearing in nearby accumulations of waste tires. The recycling of plastic floral baskets may be aiding the spread of Ae. albopictus. Mosquitoes were commonly found in all types of flower-holding containers in cemeteries, except bronze vases.
