Contemporary mosquito control includes strong surveillance-based programs, use of biological control, source reduction as a first choice, improved targeted applications for control of adult mosquitoes, an increased focus on larviciding, and specific biology-based control methods. Within the last 50 years, dengue has become a global problem, and more recently, chikungunya epidemics have occurred in Africa, Asia, Europe, the Indian and Pacific Oceans, and the Americas. Dengue and chikungunya viruses are vectored by the container mosquito species Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus. This special issue will include original research articles and reviews by medical entomologists, mosquito biologists, and mosquito control managers. Articles will focus on the biology and ecology of Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus, and on modern methods for the control of container mosquitoes.
