Host preference of Culex quinquefasciatus in Raipur city of Chattisgarh state



Host preference of Culex quinquefasciatus in Raipur city of Chattisgarh state



Journal of Communicable Diseases 33(1): 17-22



Indoor resting freshly engorged Culex quinquefasciatus collected from three different habitats viz., human, cattle and mixed dwellings of six localities of Raipur city, were analyzed for the source of blood meal by precipitin test. Of the 60 specimens from human dwellings 52 were positive for human blood with an anthropophilic index of 90%. Of the 25 specimens from cattlesheds 15 were positive for human blood with an index of 60%. Of the 20 specimens from mixed dwellings 12 showed human blood with an anthropophilic index of 63.15%. Thus, the Culex quinquefasciatus at Raipur city in Madhya Pradesh state is predominantly anthropophilic in nature irrespective of the nature of habitat of the mosquito vector.
