Abstract: thermal requirements of aedes (stegomyia) albopictus skuse, 1894 (diptera, culicidae) under laboratory conditions. allochtonous species of ae. albopictus in the american continent can be found in fourteen brazilian states - about fifteen years had been elapsed since the first report of the presence of this species in brazilian territory. considering its potential epidemiological importance and its adaptation to several habitats, it was determined, for this species, the threshold temperature and the thermal constant for egg, larval and pupal stages under laboratory conditions under four constant temperatures and 12:12 hours light-dark photoperiod. the threshold temperature for the egg phase and for the first instar were quite similar: 9.07 oc (k=214.46 degree days) and 9.23 oc (k= 36.64 degree days), respectively. for 2nd, 3rd and 4th instar, the basal-temperature was higher, oscilating between 12.26 oc and 13.95 oc. the threshold temperature for the complete larval stage and for the pupal stage were 12.03 oc (k= 99.48 degree days) and 11.87 oc (k=32.40 degree days) for males and 11.95 oc (k=110.11 degree days) and 11.60 oc (k=35.30 degree days) for females, respectively.

Abstract: influence of temperature on longevity, fecundity, and haematophagic activity of aedes (stegomyia) albopictus skuse, 1894 (diptera, culicidae) under laboratory condition. based on adults of aedes albopictus maintained under four constant temperatures, 15oc, 20oc, 25oc and 30oc, longevity of males and females, fecundity, eggs viability, number of days from emergence to the first bloodsucking, and duration of the preoviposition period were observed. the average of the longevity for female was 19.45, 59.35, 61.55 and 42.72 days, under 15oc, 20oc, 25oc and 30oc, respectively. the greatest average number of bloodsucking per female was 8.32, under 25oc. the average number of eggs per female was 1.00, 73.91, 269.87 and 183.69, and the greatest rates of viable eggs per female was 25oc and 30oc. the haematophagic activities and the oviposition were significantly influenced by temperature.

Abstract: Background Zika virus (ZIKV) is a little known arbovirus until it caused a major outbreak in the Pacific Island of Yap in 2007. Although the virus has a wide geographic distribution, most of the known vectors are sylvatic Aedes mosquitoes from Africa where the virus was first isolated. Presently, Ae. aegypti is the only known vector to transmit the virus outside the African continent, though Ae. albopictus has long been a suspected vector. Currently, Ae. albopictus has been shown capable of transmitting more than 20 arboviruses and its notoriety as an important vector came to light during the recent chikungunya pandemic. The vulnerability of Singapore to emerging infectious arboviruses has stimulated our interest to determine the competence of local Ae. albopictus to transmit ZIKV. Methodology/Principal Findings To determine the competence of Ae. albopictus to ZIKV, we orally infected local mosquito strains to a Ugandan strain virus. Fully engorged mosquitoes were maintained in an environmental chamber set at 29°C and 80–85%RH. Twelve mosquitoes were then sampled daily from day one to seven and on day 10 and 14 post infection (pi). Zika virus titre in the midgut and salivary glands of each mosquito were determined using tissue culture infectious dose50 assay, while transmissibility of the virus was determined by detecting viral antigen in the mosquito saliva by qRT-PCR. High dissemination and transmission rate of ZIKV were observed. By day 7-pi, all mosquitoes have disseminated infection and 73% of these mosquitoes have ZIKV in their saliva. By day 10-pi, all mosquitoes were potentially infectious. Conclusions/Significance The study highlighted the potential of Ae. albopictus to transmit ZIKV and the possibility that the virus could be established locally. Nonetheless, the threat of ZIKV can be mitigated by existing dengue and chikungunya control program being implemented in Singapore.

Abstract: this is the first report of the presence of aedes albopictus (skuse) in the tocantins state, brazil, in urban area of the mateiros city. immature specimens (aquatic stages) of this vector were collected in water reservoirs, treeholes, old tires and others. the existence of ae. albopictus in the metropolitan area poses a potential risk for the interaction of this mosquito species with the urban human population.

Abstract: aedes (stegomyia) albopictus (skuse, 1894) is an exotic culicidae species in brazil. since its first report in this country, the mosquito has been increasing its geographic distribution. this mosquito is a natural dengue and japanese encephalitis virus vector in asia. the females preference for oviposition sites related with homospecific immature presence was assessed. the experiment was performed with aedes albopictus from laboratory colony since march ]999, in the laboratório de entomologia médica e veterinária, departamento de zoologia, universidade federal do paraná. the preferred container was the one that kept pupae for 24 hours, with 643 eggs, 30,6% at total. the eggs recipients received 11,45% from total set by the females, and the following numbers to the others: larva 1 (15,79%), larva 2 (14,69%), pupa 1 (20,74%), pupa 2 (30,58%), control (6,75%). although the anova did not detect significant difference among the treatments, the data possibly indicate that aedes albopictus prefer laying eggs in containers previously colonized by immature.
