‘Aedes aegypti’

Aedes aegypti

A female mosquito (Aedes aegypti) fills up on human blood. In the process, she can also spread viruses, including Zika, dengue and chikungunya. A new review of existing research shows spatial repellents using volatile pyrethroids can be a useful tool in protecting humans from mosquitoes that may carry disease.
