Abstract:

This report describes the results of 2.5 years of study of factors regulating populations of Mansonia dyari, a pest mosquito and potential disease vector in south Florida. Sites of high and low M. dyari density were selected and through regular sampling compared in particular characteristics which included abundances of all mosquito life stages, seasonal growth of the host plant Pistia stratiotes, water quality, and associated invertebrate fauna.
