A laboratory evaluation of the microsporidian Vavraia culicis as an agent for mosquito control


, : A laboratory evaluation of the microsporidian Vavraia culicis as an agent for mosquito control. Journal of Invertebrate Pathology, 372: 117-122

The susceptibility of Aedes aegypti (L.), A. taeniorhynchus (Wied.), Anopheles albimanus Wied., Culex quinquefasciatus Say (pipiens quinquefasciatus), C. salinarius Coq., and C. tarsalis Coq. to infection by the microsporidian Vavraia culicis was determined. Using 18-h exposures to 5 X 103, 1 X 104, 5 X 104, and 1 X 105 spores/ml, C. salinarius, C. tarsalis, and A. albimanus were found to be significantly more susceptible than Aedes aegypti.
