Abstract

Research on mosquito biology and ecology yields fundamental knowledge of the behavior, habits, breeding preferences, flight range, survival rates, and other characteristics of pest and disease-vector mosquitoes-information essential for effective planning and execution of control programs. Ecological studies assume greater importance in California than elsewhere because of the state's diverse climate and topography. Forty-nine mosquito species are found here, of which six are confirmed disease vectors.Knowledge of the behavior and characteristics o f mosquitoes i s the first step in finding more effective control methods.
