An Investigation of Possible Vectors of Wuchereria bancrofti (Cobbold) in Bahia, Brazil



An Investigation of Possible Vectors of Wuchereria bancrofti (Cobbold) in Bahia, Brazil



J. Parasit, Baltimore, Md. 21(1): 21-26



Experiments were carried out between October 1932 and April 1933 at Sao Salvador, Bahia, to determine the susceptibility of local mosquitos to infection with Filaria (Wuchereria) bancrofti. The females used were all bred from larvae with the exception of those of Mansonia juxtamansonia, Chagas, which were caught as adults in an uninhabited marsh about 4 miles outside the city. The mosquitos were fed on a case of filariasis at about 10 p.m. and subsequently dissected at varying intervals.
