SERPA, Lígia Leandro Nunes; MONTEIRO, Simone D'Cara Barbosa  and  VOLTOLINI, Júlio Cesar. Effect of larval rearing water on Aedes aegypti oviposition in the laboratory. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2008, vol.41, n.5, pp.515-517. ISSN 0037-8682.

To evaluate the influence of larval rearing water on Aedes aegypti oviposition, four types of water were provided for gravid females. It was observed that more eggs were laid in the mixed larval rearing water (2,837) than in the Aedes albopictus water (690) or control water (938), but that this number was similar to what was seen in the Aedes aegypti water (2,361).

Keywords : Aedes aegypti; Aedes albopictus; Oviposition; Stimulant; Pheromone.
