Summary: Populations of resting Culex nigripalpus were monitored with a ground aspirator weekly at four different sites in Palm Beach County, Florida from April, 1991, through March, 1992. There was no difference found in rainfall abundance or in temperature at the four sites, however mosquito production was significantly different. Baseline data of the population was established and two sites produced high numbers of Cx. nigripalpus. One of these two sites acted like an island for resting mosquitoes, attracting them from surrounding areas; the other site had continuous standing water and constant mosquito numbers. Environmental parameters on population density and structure were also examined at the two sites. Only one of the sites showed correlation with rainfall in population density and structure. Both sites were identified for use in future St. Louis Encephalitis surveillance programs.
