host feeding patterns of potential vectors of eastern equine encephalitis virus at an epizootic focus in 2006, 2,817 blood-fed mosquitoes were collected from the site of a 2005 eastern equine encephalitis outbreak in chester county, tn. using a polymerase chain reaction-based assay, 264 vertebrate hosts were identified from seven mosquito species. culex erraticus and cx. nigripalpus fed on a diversity of mammalian, avian, and reptilian hosts, whereas anopheles quadrimaculatus and an. punctipennis were predominantly mammalophagic. overall, 27% of cx. nigripalpus, 16% of cx. erraticus, and 7% of a ...200919706914
identification of bloodmeals in anopheles quadrimaculatus and anopheles punctipennis from eastern equine encephalitis virus foci in northeastern u.s.a.the host-feeding patterns of anopheles quadrimaculatus say and anopheles punctipennis (say) were examined in order to evaluate their potential contributions to the transmission of eastern equine encephalitis virus (eeev) and other arboviruses in the northeastern u.s.a. engorged mosquitoes of the two species were collected from eeev foci in central new york (ny) and throughout new jersey (nj), and their bloodmeals were identified using a polymerase chain reaction (pcr)-based assay and sequencing ...200919941600
