hematophagous diptera collected from a horse and paired carbon dioxide-baited suction trap in southern california: relevance to west nile virus epizootiology.hematophagous diptera landing on a horse were removed by vacuum, and their numbers were related to a paired carbon dioxide-baited suction trap at three locations in southern california where west nile virus activity was high during the preceding year. insects collected from the horse included mosquitoes (nine species), biting midges (culicoides sonorensis wirth & jones), and black flies (simulium bivittatum malloch). mosquitoes were predominantly collected from the head, crest, withers, neck, ch ...200818283951
mosquito capture rate using co2-baited traps in relation to distance from water and height: implications for avian disease transmission.accumulating evidence suggests that enzootic transmission of pathogens such as west nile virus (wnv) by mosquitoes is governed by host-bird interactions, including mosquito preferences for specific species and developmental stages of host birds, host bird availability, and host defensive behavior. here, we examined how the attack rate of five mosquito species in southern california was influenced by the position of co2-baited traps in relation to distance from water and trap height. we identifie ...201627493249
