Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Culex quinquefasciatus is the vector of lymphatic filariasis caused by the nematode Wuchereria bancrofti in the tropics and sub tropics.This is the primary vector of fiariasis in India.It is a strong winged domestic species seen all over India in and around human dwellings. Rapid urbanization and industrialization without adequate drainage facilities are responsible for its increased dispersal. The species is highly anthropophlic (they prefer human blood). They enters the houses at dusk and reaches maximum density by midnight. The peak biting time is at midnight. Legs, particularly below the knee are the preferred biting sites. During day, it may be seen resting indoorson walls, underneath furniture, hanging cloths and in dark corners.show more
