Abstract:

<p>Abstract: After a report of mosquito nuisance and collection of live Culex quinquefasciatus mosquitoes on board of a passenger aircraft from Africa to Amsterdam, a mosquito surveillance was carried out in 38 cabins of passenger aircraft from overseas airports immediately after landing at Amsterdam Schiphol airport, the Netherlands (2010 and 2011). Live mosquitoes were collected in 10 aeroplanes, belonging to the species Culex quinquefasciatus (n=9), Culex antennatus (n=2), and Aedes mcintoshi (n=1). All mosquitoes were collected in aeroplanes that came from airports located in Africa. Disinsection is discussed. Journal of the European Mosquito Control Association 32: 17-21, 2014</p>
