Abstract

THE mosquito Culex modestus is considered the main bridge vector of West Nile virus in continental Europe, responsible for transmitting the virus from birds to humans (Balenghien and others 2008). Cx modestus was reported in three nature reserves in north Kent in 2010 (Golding and others 2012) – 60 years after the previous UK report. Isolated specimens were then reported from Dorset and Cambridgeshire (Medlock and Vaux 2012).
