This paper describes some of the effects of Popcorn Wolbachia on the survivorship of Aedes aegypti eggs‚ larvae and adults. The results were used to assess the potential for wMelPop-CLA to invade natural populations of Ae. aegypti and to develop recommendations for the maintenance of fitness in infected mosquitoes that need to compete against field insects.
