Figure 1. From: Host-Feeding Preference of the Mosquito, Culex quinquefasciatus, in Yucatan State, Mexico.

The source of blood meals for engorged Culex quinquefasciatus captured outdoors, in the backyards of houses, each month in Merida, Yucatan State. DNA was extracted from engorged mosquitoes and analyzed by PCR using universal avian-and mammalian-specific primers. DNA extracted from avian-derived blood meals was further examined by PCR using primers that differentiate between Passeriformes, Columbiformes and Galliformes. Data are presented as the percentage of mosquitoes containing blood derived from mammals, avians, Passeriformes, Columbiformes and Galliformes each month. High quality figures are available online.
