BUENO MARI, RUBÉN y JIMENEZ PEYDRO, RICARDO. Establishment of predictive elements concerning to the occurrence of culicid mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae). Rev. Colomb. Entomol. [online]. 2011, vol.37, n.1, pp. 84-90. ISSN 0120-0488.
Multiple logistic regressions were conducted to identify the quantitative and qualitative environmental variables that best predict the occurrence of the different species of culicid mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) collected over four years of study (2005-2008) in the eastern Iberian Peninsula. The results show that some variables make it possible to achieve optimal percent incidence for the species Ochlerotatus caspius, Culex pipiens, Culex territans and Culiseta longiareolata. The study of possible predictive elements for the occurrence of culicids is postulated as a useful and convenient tool for the establishment of successful mosquito population control programs.
