Abstract:Aedes aegypti L. (Diptera: Culicidae), being the primary vector of pathogenic arboviruses, is a target for the development of novel genetic approaches to complement current conventional vector control strategies such as the combined sterile insect and incompatible insect technique (SIT/IIT). A transinfected line of Ae. aegypti carrying the wAlbB Wolbachia strain (WB2) was introgressed into two genomic backgrounds, Brazil and Mexico, producing two new Ae. aegypti strains (WB2‐BRA and WB2‐MEX). These strains wer…
