|Title:||COMPARATIVE STUDIES ON AEDES AEGYPTI AND AEDES ALBOPICTUS ADULT FEMALES TRESPASSING COMMERCIAL NETS|
|Abstract:||The abilities of Aedes aegypti and Ae. albopictus females in trespassing 5 different commercial nets, 2 nets impregnated with deltamethrin or permethrin and 3 non-impregnated nets (Guarany, Perame, and Ricca), were compared. The evaluating parameters were their percent trespassing success, the median trespassing time (TT(50)), and the relation between mosquito wing sizes and their trespassing success. Some mosquito behavioral traits were also observed. The trespassing success, directly related to opening areas, was found to be lower with impregnated nets for both species. The differences between the mosquito species were significant among all the nets except Ricca. Aedes albopictus showed a very high success rate in trespassing the non-impregnated Perame net and a lower success rate in trespassing Guarany. Aedes albopictus also showed a very high success rate in trespassing pyrethroid-impregnated nets. The TT(50) values for the Ricca and Guarany nets were not significantly different between the species, but a significantly lower TT(50) value was found for the net with the largest opening (Ricca). The smaller wingspan of Ae. albopictus seems to explain the higher trespassing success of this species.|
