This characteristic makes the complete eradication of discrete infestations possible, provided that baiting is...

In the past, little attention has been given to the formal genetics and cytogenetics of Aedes aegypti. An energetic attempt must be undertaken, therefore, to fill in the many gaps in our knowledge of the genetics of this species.
