in Oklahoma, and Implications in Arbovirus Transmission. Journal of the American Mosquito Control Association 31(1):93-96.
A series of statewide surveys were conducted in Oklahoma in the summers between 1991 and 2004 to identify the distribution of Aedes albopictus
. Adult mosquitoes were identified in 63 counties, bringing the currently known distribution of Ae. albopictus
in the state to 69 of 77 counties. The widespread presence of Ae. albopictus
in Oklahoma has important current and future public and veterinary health implications for surveillance and control efforts.
