Normally the main vector of malaria is Anopheles spp. and Aedes aegypti is a vector of Dengue fever virus, so both mosquitoes species allow the pathogen living inside their bodies or call susceptible vector. The susceptible vector is a one type of vector and pathogen relationship, it means vector gives some benefits to pathogen and the pathogen has recognized by some part of immune system and allows them developed and multiply inside the body but the vector immune will regulate the amount of pathogens that it doesn’t cause harm to themselves. All of the above was shown why Aedes aegypti is not malaria vector because this mosquitoes don’t have some benefit factor for malaria parasites to grow up inside there body for transmission to another host and maybe the immune of this mosquitoes recognize the parasites is a foreign body must have to eliminate. Although some research publication have a report shown some species of Aedes spp. can transmit some part of malaria parasites but not common ones . So Aedes aegypti cannot be a vector of malaria in Thailand.
