Aedes albopictus in Rome: monitoring in the 3-year period of 1998-2000



Aedes albopictus in Rome: monitoring in the 3-year period of 1998-2000



Annali Dell'istituto Superiore di Sanita 37(2): 249-254



Aedes albopictus was first reported in Italy in 1990 and in the urban area of Rome in the late summer 1997. Ae. albopictus is a daytime, outdoor mosquito, that bite preferably on man. In Rome (42 degrees South of latitude), larvae are found from March to November, but some adult females are active until December. The peak of adult abundance, and then of the annoyance caused to man, occurs in late August-September. The presence of the species in Rome represents the first example in Italy of extensive colonization of an urban area, with involvement of hundred-thousand people. Since 1997, Ae. albopictus has spread quickly from the initial foci to the whole city. In 2000, scattered foci of the species have been reported throughout the urban area and in some towns of the province.
