Aedes aegypti L. Until an effective vaccine is licensed and rigorously administered, Ae. Accurate predictions of vector populations are required to assess control methods and develop effective population reduction strategies. Release recapture studies indicate that most adult Ae.
We expect, therefore, that containers in an area of high development site density are more likely to be oviposition sites and to be more frequently used as oviposition sites than containers that are relatively isolated from other development sites.
After accounting for individual container characteristics, containers more frequently used as oviposition sites are likely to produce adult mosquitoes consistently and at a higher rate.
To this point, most studies of Ae. Pupal surveys were carried out from to in rural Kamphaeng Phet, Thailand. In total, 84, samples of water holding containers were used to estimate model parameters. Regression modeling was used to assess the effect of larval development site density, access to piped water, and seasonal variation on container productivity.
A varying-coefficients model was employed to account for the large differences in productivity between container types. A two-part modeling structure, called a hurdle model, accounts for the large number of zeroes and overdispersion present in pupal population counts. The number of suitable larval development sites and their density in the environment were the primary determinants of the distribution and abundance of Ae.
