Cana­dian in­vaders

Houston Chronicle Sunday - - WORLD -

The species of mos­quito most re­spon­si­ble for the trans­mis­sion of hu­man Zika virus cases has been found for the first time in Canada.

An adult Aedes ae­gypti mos­quito was cap­tured in a south­ern On­tario trap only a week af­ter two Aedes al­bopic­tus mosquitoes were also found in the area.

It has long been pre­dicted that cli­mate change will re­sult in ex­pand­ing habi­tats for disease-car­ry­ing in­sects.
