    Ellen Bidlack commented on an older version of Economic Importance for Humans: Negative:

    Ringed neck pheasants are domestic animals. Emus have also been infected with EEEV, with devastating results. The wild birds that play an important role in the maintenance cycle of EEEV include but not limited to Blue Jay, Wood Thrush, Brown Thrasher, Grey Catbird, Carolina Chickadee, Ovenbird and Tuffted Titmouse. Generally those birds that either permanent or summer residents in areas where EEEV is common. (Crans, W. J., D. F. Caccamise and J. R. McNelly, 1994. Eastern Equine Encephalomyelitis Virus in Relation to the Avain Community of a coastal Cedar Swamp. J. Med. Ent, 31(5):711-728.)

    Ellen Bidlack commented on an older version of Reproduction:

    There are several problems with this article: 1. Most mosquitoes overwinter as eggs. 2. The eggs of Cs. melanura are laid in rafts. (Chamberlain, R.W., W.D. Sudia and D. B. Nelson. 1955. Laboratory observations on a mosquito, Culiseta melanura (Coquillett). Mosq. News 15:18-21., Wallis, R.C. 1954. Notes on the biology of Culiseta melanura (Coquillett). Mosq. News 14:33-34., Wallis R. C. 1954. A study of the oviposition activity of mosquitoes. Am. J. Hyg. 60:135-168. 3. Crypts are cavities formed by the root systems of trees primarily Atlantic White Cedar and Red Maple. (I have pictures if you like.) 4. your description of what Cs. melanura looks like is pretty generic.
