Abstract

Ceratopogonidae (Diptera) were collected on sheep farms in southern Ontario to establish whether Culicoides spp. pose a threat to the livestock industry. Specimens were collected in modified CO2-baited Centers for Disease Control and Prevention light traps, returned to the laboratory,...

Abstract

A wide variety of blood-feeding Diptera feed on extrafloral sugar sources such as homopteran honeydew. The significance of these sugar sources to insect survival and disease transmission is poorly known. Culicoides sonorensis, a biting midge, can survive on plant sugars but might also feed on...

Abstract

A study was conducted to evaluate the effects of ivermectin with or without clorsulon on the susceptibility of Culicoides sonorensis [C. variipennis sonorensis] to Bluetongue virus (BTV) and Epizootic haemorrhagic disease virus (EHDV). Shetland ponies, sheep and elks seronegative for BTV and EHDV...

Abstract

Differences in midgut microbial communities inhabiting Culicoides spp., insect vectors of virus pathogens, may affect the variation observed in the ability of these biting midges to propagate arthropod-borne viruses. As a first step toward addressing this hypothesis, midgut bacterial communities...

Abstract

Holstein heifers in a confined feedlot setting on a southern California dairy (USA) were either sprayed individually along the ventral midline using 0.2% permethrin (250 ml/animal) (2 pens) or were not treated (2 pens). Treatments (n=6 dates) were applied every 2 weeks during the peak fall...

Abstract

Aquatic habitats with immature populations of the C. variipennis complex were sampled across USA and tested for soil chemistry parameters. Indicators of organic loading, phosphate, percentage of organic matter, and nitrate were high for C. variipennis and C. sonorensis, reflecting the common...

Abstract

We report sympatry among larval populations of the Culicoides variipennis complex in widespread and diverse aquatic habitats throughout the United States. Six sites in California, Nevada, New Mexico, and Texas were co-inhabited by C. variipennis occidentalis and C. variipennis sonorensis, whereas 8 ...
