The overall aim of this work was to study the biology of the A. albopictus population in Switzerland to better understand the risk of local vector-borne disease transmissions, by reviewing the effect of existing control measures in the Canton of Ticino. Four specific objectives were pursued in this PhD: (i) to compare the spatial and temporal distribution of A. albopictus in Ticino (intervention) with its distribution in the neighbouring Italian communities (non-intervention) just across the national border, evaluating the impact of the Ticino control programme, (ii) to assess the insecticide susceptibility status of the A. albopictus population in Swiss-Italian border region, (iii) to investigate host preferences of A. albopictus, (iv) to assess the vector competence of the local A. albopictus population for dengue virus (DENV) transmission und local conditions.
