Six species of cyclopoid copepods in New Orleans were tested for biological control of Aedes albopictus larvae in discarded tires. Six to 8 weeks after introduction, Diacyclops navus, Acanthocyclops vernalis, Mesocyclops ruttneri and Mesocyclops edax reduced the number of Ae. albopictus larvae by 83, 90, 95 and 96%, respectively. Macrocyclops albidus and Mesocyclops longisetus were the most effective species. Six to 8 weeks after introduction, Macrocyclops albidus reduced Ae. albopictus larvae by 99%. Three months after introduction Macrocyclops albidus reduced Ae. albopictus larvae by 100%, and Mesocyclops longisetus reduced Ae. albopictus larvae by 99.8%. Macrocyclops albidus and Mesocyclops longisetus were equally effective at eliminating Ae. aegypti and Ae. triseriatus larvae.
