Mosquito vectors of dog heartworm dirofilaria immitis in western massachusetts usa



Mosquito vectors of dog heartworm dirofilaria immitis in western massachusetts usa



Mosquito News 38(2): 222-230



A total of 3445 female mosquitoes representing 23 spp. were collected in the field, held for 10 days and dissected for the presence of infective stage larvae of D. immitis. Eleven naturally infected individuals of 3 spp. of Aedes mosquitoes [A. canadensis, A. excrucians and A. sticticus] were found. In the laboratory, 1451 females representing 19 spp. were fed on a heartworm infected dog and subsequently dissected for evidence of larval development. Development of at least some filariae were supported to the infective stage in 10 spp. A. canadensis and A. excrucians appear to have the greatest potential as vectors of dog heartworm in western Massachusetts [USA].
