We describe the ovicidal action of a 3,75% (w/v) sodium hypochlorite solution on the eggs of Aedes albopictus (Skuse). The effectiveness of this ovicide has also been confirmed by a field trial. On the basis of the data collected in the city of Bologna, Italy, we hypothesize a relationship between the numerical increase of the Ae. albopictus eggs laid and the reduced daily variation of the relative humidity, facilitating the possibility of planning ovicidal treatments.

Abstract

We describe the ovicidal action of a 3,75% (w/v) sodium hypochlorite solution on the eggs of Aedes albopictus (Skuse). The effectiveness of this ovicide has also been confirmed by a field trial. On the basis of the data collected in the city of Bologna, Italy, we hypothesize a relationship between the numerical increase of the Ae. albopictus eggs laid and the reduced daily variation of the relative humidity, facilitating the possibility of planning ovicidal treatments.
