The physiological age of Culex fatigans and its relationship to the transmission of Wuchereria bancrofti



The physiological age of Culex fatigans and its relationship to the transmission of Wuchereria bancrofti



Scientia Sinica 15(5): 716-722



It is suggested that not less than 30 ovarioles should be examined to determine the physiological age of Culex fatigans reliably. In an area endemic for bancroftian filariasis, newly engorged C. fatigans were caught from human dwellings in the morning and dissected on the same day. 1, 121 females were dissected, of which 19.4% were found infected. The infection rate rose as the physiological age of the mosquito increased.
