Evaluation of Aedes aegypti densonucleosis (AeDNV) infection in adult mosquito mortality
Aedes aegypti densonucleosis virus (AeDNV) has long been considered a likely agent in biologic control against arthropod-borne diseases. Extensive studies have been done to evaluate infection and pathogeneses in Aedes aegypti larvae and pupae, but only primary studies have been preformed in adults. The primary studies on adult mortality produced a two part mortality curve that showed high levels of early mortality, low levels of intermediate mortality and high levels of late mortality. It was hypothesized that the high levels of early mortality were due to high levels of virus infection, ...
