Public Health Response to Aedes aegypti and Ae. albopictus Mosquitoes Invading California, USA.

Porse CC, Kramer V, Yoshimizu MH, Metzger M, Hu R, Padgett K, Vugia DJ - Emerging Infect. Dis. (2015)

Bottom Line: Aedes aegypti and Ae. albopictus mosquitoes, primary vectors of dengue and chikungunya viruses, were recently detected in California, USA.The threat of potential local transmission of these viruses increases as more infected travelers arrive from affected areas.Public health response has included enhanced human and mosquito surveillance, education, and intensive mosquito control.

Figure 1: Invasive Aedes mosquitoes detected during 2011–2015 and number of imported human cases of dengue, chikungunya fever, or both reported during 2014 in counties in California, USA.

Mentions: In 2013, Ae. aegypti mosquitoes were detected in Fresno, Madera, and San Mateo Counties, California; analysis indicated they were genetically most similar to Ae. aegypti mosquitoes from the southeastern United States (11). In 2014, Ae. aegypti mosquitoes persisted in those 3 counties and were also detected in Kern, Tulare, Los Angeles, and San Diego Counties. In 2015, Ae. aegypti mosquitoes were detected in Imperial, Orange, and Alameda Counties (Figure). Of 1,729 Ae. aegypti mosquitoes captured during 2013–2014 and tested at CVEC, none were positive for DENV or CHIKV.
