Abstract
Mosquitoes tend to alter or change their behaviour quite often in nature. Immunological methods are widely used for the assessment and identification of host selection and host preference behavior of vector and also nuisance mosquitoes. In this context, Aedes aegypti Linn and Culex quinquefasciatus, the vector mosquitoes were selected to study their host preference pattern at present by using three hosts human, bird and mammals. The dynamic nature and opportunistic behavior of these mosquitoes were confirmed. Therefore, this study suggests that periodic review of feeding pattern of mosquitoes by using immunological methods is the need of the hour to check the outbreak of vector-borne diseases. Further, cost-effective novel immunological methods shall be involved in the near future too.
