Abstract: ABSTRACT. Characterization of Culicidae larvae (Diptera) consumption in two species of native fish in the central zone of Argentina. Mosquitoes represent a threat to human health and animals because they act as vectors of several diseases. Native fish species are potential candidates to be considered for biological control populations of mosquitoes. Tests of half-hour and 24-hour consumption of Culex pipiens (Linnaeus, 1758) larvae by Cnesterodon decemmaculatus (Jenyns, 1842) and Jenynsia multidentata (Jeny… Show more

“…Jenynsia multidentata consumption results obtained by Marti et al (2006) at a density of 60 larvae were like those achieved in this experiment and inferior at a larval density of 120. The results showed that J. multidentata predatory capacity was greater, even in the presence of vegetation, than those obtained by other authors in experiments without vegetation (Marti et al, 2006, Bonifacio et al, 2014. This could be due to the differences in water volume used in both experiments.…”

“…This could be due to the differences in water volume used in both experiments. Lower predatory capacity was observed in J. multidentata females in experiments with small volumes of water (Bonifacio et al, 2014). The fish energy expenditure could decrease with a lower volume of water that, in turn, would reduce the consumption of larvae.…”
