    Parasit Vectors 6:9. 2013
    ..In urban environments, these mosquitoes commonly oviposit in roadside storm water catch basins. However, use of this habitat is inconsistent, with abundance of larvae varying significantly across catch basins at a fine spatial scale...

    Scott R Loss
    Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences, Shelford Vivarium, Urbana, IL, USA
    Vector Borne Zoonotic Dis 9:13-8. 2009
    ..These combined results suggest that nestling passerines play no evident role in WNV amplification and transmission in the Chicago area...

    Oecologia 159:415-24. 2009
    ..These results from a fine-scale study call into question the generality of a dilution effect for WNV at coarser spatial scales...

    ..The objectives were to improve understanding of human exposure to virus-infected mosquitoes in the urban context, and to assess the degree to which environmental factors found to be important in Chicago were also found in Detroit...
