Abstract

In the summer of 2005, the Asian tigermosquito (Aedes albopictus) was found for the first time in the Netherlands. It was intercepted in several horticultural companies that import the ornamental plant Lucky bamboo from southern China, an endemic area for this mosquito species. The current report describes the results from a one-year survey that was carried out to study the distribution of Aedes albopictus in the Netherlands (July 2006-June 2007). Since the presence of this species is directly linked to the continuous import of Lucky bamboo the focus of the survey was aimed at these companies
