1965 progress report of the Aedes aegypti eradication program in the United States

, : 1965 progress report of the Aedes aegypti eradication program in the United States. Mosquito News 26(4): 486-489

Field operations to eradicate A. aegypti from the US were begun in 26 localities in 1964, and were greatly expanded in 1965. Significant reductions were achieved, and a few areas are rapidly approaching negativity. A. aegypti breeding proved to be heavier and more widely distributed than expected in both urban and rural areas. However, in one large segment of the yellow fever receptive area, the lower Mississippi River Basin, A. aegypti is absent, or is present in exceedingly small numbers. Despite technical and logistical problems, results achieved indicate that A. aegypti will be eradicated in the US yellow fever and dengue endemic areas.
