Bionomics:
Immatures are found in natural containers, including treeholes, bamboo stumps, coconut shells, rockholes, palm fronds, and leaf axils. They are also found in all varieties of artifical containers and will breed indoors. Females readily bite man (Huang 1972).

Medical Importance:
Vector of dengue and yellow fever in the wild. Under laboratory conditions: bird malarias, Eastern and Western equine encephalitis, West Nile, chikungunya and Japanese encephalitis viruses (Huang 1972).
