Comparative efficacy of certain South American Aedes and Haemagogus mosquitoes as laboratory vectors of yellow fever



Comparative efficacy of certain South American Aedes and Haemagogus mosquitoes as laboratory vectors of yellow fever



Amer Jour Trop Med 29(4): 567-575



Expts. showed A. leucocelaenus to be an efficient vector of yellow fever virus, producing fatal infection, by bite, in laboratory animals. On the basis of an assumed transmission rate of 1 for A. aegypti, the following transmission ratios were obtained: A. leucocelaenus, 1.29; a mixed group of Haemagogus capricornii and H. spegazzinii, 0.73; H. equinus, 0.45; A. scapularis, 0.31; and H. splendens, 0.16.
