Seasonal profiles of Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae) larval habitats in an urban area of Costa Rica with a history of mosquito control
Dengue is the most important arboviral disease worldwide and the principal vector-borne disease in Costa Rica. Control of Aedes aegypti populations through source reduction is still considered the most effective way of ...
Evaluation of predictive maps for Aedes aegypti larval habitats in two urban areas of Costa Rica
The abundance of Aedes aegypti can be associated with urban structure and tree cover, which conceals and protects containers. The purpose of this study was to create and evaluate predictive maps for Ae. Aegypti larval ...
Mapping the risk of Aedes aegypti larval habitats using tree cover in Puntarenas, Costa Rica
Tree cover and other characteristics of urban structure have been associated in urban environments with abundance and productivity of Aedes aegypti and other mosquito larval habitats. Tree cover can conceal containers, ...
