Table 1 Provinces and number of sites monitored (positive and total of mosquitoes and of pools is also reported along with the estimated rate of infection (ERI) for Dirofilaria spp. and their statistical significance (**)).

From: Molecular xenomonitoring of Dirofilaria immitis and Dirofilaria repens in mosquitoes from north-eastern Italy by real-time PCR coupled with melting curve analysis
