A study of the age-composition of natural populations of Culex pipiens fatigans Wiedemann in relation to the transmission of filariasis due to Wuchereria bancrofti (Cobbold) in Ceylon



A study of the age-composition of natural populations of Culex pipiens fatigans Wiedemann in relation to the transmission of filariasis due to Wuchereria bancrofti (Cobbold) in Ceylon



Bulletin of the World Health Organization 37(1): 117-137



From 1962 to 1964, a study was made of Culex pipiens fatigans, the vector of Wuchereria bancrofti, in 2 districts of Colombo, Ceylon, one with vector control using larvicides and one without. Catches were made of the house-resting, biting and ovipositing populations, and the stages of ovarian development, parity and infection were determined by examination of the external appearance of the abdomen and dissection for ovariole dilatations and filariae.
