FERREIRA NETO, Joaquim A.; LIMA, Milton Moura and ARAGAO, Mario B.. First observations on Aedes albopictus in the State of Espirito Santo, Brasil. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 1987, vol.3, n.1, pp.56-61. ISSN 1678-4464. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-311X1987000100006.
Observations performed at the State of Espirito Santo showed that Aedes albopictus did not change its behaviour to a significant extent after being introduced in Brazil. The breeding places are the same as those described in Asia and can be found more frequently in open areas. The adult mosquitoes rest in short vegetation and only sporadically penetrate into the human habitations.
