Male accessory gland substances from Aedes albopictus affect the locomotor activity of Aedes aegypti females

Abstract: Dengue is one of the world’s most important mosquito-borne diseases and is usually transmitted by one of two vector species: Aedes aegypti or Aedes albopictus . These two diurnal mosquitoes are frequently found coexisting in similar habitats, enabling interactions between adults, such as cross-mating. The objective of this study was to assess cross-mating between Ae. aegypti females and Ae. albopictus males under artificial conditions and evaluate the locomotor activity of Ae. aegypti virgin females injected w… Show more

“…It is likely that the intense trading of used tires containing eggs has favoured the wide dispersion of this species over recent decades, particularly beginning in the 1980s; the intercontinental traffic of other goods and varied routes have also been suggested as passive dispersal mechanisms ( Reiter 1998 , Lounibos 2002 , Benedict et al 2007 , Paupy et al 2009 ). Its colonisation of temperate regions such as North America and Europe as well as tropical and subtropical regions such as South America and Africa was facilitated by the species’ strong biological and behavioural plasticity, including its use of a substantial variety of larval habitats (e.g., artificial and natural containers), highly competitive ability during the larval stage, relative resistance to low temperatures, and other unfavourable environmental conditions during both immature and adults stages, and ability to colonise both human-made and natural environments (e.g., near human dwellings, non-residential areas and forest fringes) ( Reiter & Sprenger 1987 , Hawley 1988 , Estrada-Franco & Craig Jr 1995 , Lounibos et al 2003 , Lourenço-de-Oliveira et al 2003 , Juliano & Lounibos 2005 , Paupy et al 2009 , Fernández et al 2012 , Lima-Camara et al 2013) .
