Culex nigripalpus: seasonal shift in the bird-mammal feeding ratio in a mosquito vector of human encephalitis.

Edman JD, Taylor DJ. 1968. Culex nigripalpus: seasonal shift in the bird-mammal feeding ratio in a mosquito vector of human encephalitis. Science 161(3836): 67-68.

Abstract
Blood-engorged Culex nigripalpus (Theob.) collected throughout the year in two Florida localities were serologically tested to determine the host range of this mosquito in nature. A proportional increase in feeding on mammals occurred in early summer, reached a maximum between July and October, and was followed by a shift back to avian hosts which dominated the feeding pattern during winter and spring.

Available online as 188pp PDF document but all pages are photocopies, so text cannot be searched. Author Peter Belton is a retired professor at Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, BC.

Evaluation of seasonal feeding patterns of West Nile virus vectors in Bernalillo Co., NM: implications for disease transmission.
By Lujan et al.
J Med Entomol. 51(1): 264-268., 2014
Lujan DA, Greenberg JA, Hung AS, Dimenna MA, Hofkin BV. 2014. Evaluation of seasonal feeding patterns of West Nile virus vectors in Bernalillo county, New Mexico, United States: implications for disease transmission. J Med Entomol. 51(1): 264-268.

Abstract
Many mosquito species take bloodmeals predominantly from either birds or mammals. Other mosquito species are less host-specific and feed readily on both. Furthermore, some species tend to alter their feeding patterns over the course of the year; early in the mosquito season such species may feed primarily on a particular host type, and subsequently take an increasingly larger proportion of their bloodmeals from an alternative host type as the season progresses.

Effect of temperature on life history traits during immature development of Aedes aegypti and Culex quinquefasciatus (Culicidae)
By Grech et al.
Acta Tropica 146: 1-6., 2015
Full Abstract

Grech MG, Sartor PD, Almirón WR, Ludueña-Almeida FF. 2015. Effect of temperature on life history traits during immature development of Aedes aegypti and Culex quinquefasciatus (Diptera: Culicidae) from Córdoba city, Argentina. Acta Tropica 146: 1-6.

Abstract (part)
Development times of all larval and pupal stages of Ae. aegypti and Cx. quinquefasciatus were significantly affected by the rearing temperatures, decreasing when temperature increased. Mean Ae. aegypti total (larva+pupa) development time ranged from 21.9 to 8.6 days, at 15.2 and 25.3°C, whereas, for [i]Cx.

Mosquitoes of the southeastern United States
By Nathan D. Burkett-Cadena
The University of Alabama Press. xiii + 188 pp., 2013
Google (Limited) Preview

Mosquitoes of the Southeastern United States is a full-color, highly illustrated guide to the sixty-four known species of mosquitoes in eleven genera that populate the Southeast [defined here as MS-n.FL-NC-TN]

This book’s usefulness to mosquito control programs in the Southeast and beyond cannot be overstated. Not only for native species, but for new species introduced from exotic locales, mosquitoes must be properly identified in order to know how best to control them. This volume will also be valuable to medical and public health specialists working on mosquito-borne diseases, such as malaria, dengue, yellow fever, West Nile virus, and filariasis.
