Interesting info[edit]

This could be added to the article: http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvbid/dengue/map-ae-aegypti-distribution.htm XApple 16:09, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

Encyclopedia of Life[edit]

EOL has more information than we do...it's the fifth-most-popular article there. Bob the Wikipedian, the Tree of Life WikiDragon (talk) 20:35, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

Focus on disease[edit]

I feel as though this article talks more about the diseases that the mosquito transfers, as opposed to the mosquito itself. Should there not be a separate subsection to refer to the pathology, while the rest of the article focus on the general aspects of the mosquito such as its life cycle, difference in physiology to other mosquitoes, etc...?

It would be useful to include a range map and perhaps a prevalence chart. In some areas, the mosquito is possible but unlikely, whereas in other areas it is frequent.

confusing syntax in an important sentence[edit]

I found this sentence to be confusing.

"Several commercial insect repellents had little, short duration or no effect, unlike DEET (particularly concentrated products) and Cutter lemon-eucalyptus product, while AVON So Soft products had ´low or no effect in a scientific study with Aedes aegypti' "

Is DEET effective? Certainly an important item that should be in a simple statement alone rather than tangled up as a negative. I'm not qualified to modify this myself. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.39.201.132 (talk) 13:18, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
