  2. I whish to pay your attention to the work of Dr. M. Halpern and co workers (Haifa University, Israel) regarding to their evidence that egg masses of the non-biting midge Chironomus sp. harbor the pathogenic bacterium Vibrio cholerae and act as its sole carbon source, thereby providing a natural reservoir of this bacterium.  Here is a list of their articles on the subject. Broza, M. and Halpern, M. (²001) Chironomids egg masses and Vibrio cholerae. Nature 41²: 40. Halpern M., Gancz H., Broza, M. and Kashi, Y. (²003) Vibrio cholerae Hemagglutinin/Protease Degrades Chironomid Egg Masses. Journal of Applied and Environmental Microbiology. 69: 4²00-4²04. Halpern M., Broza, Y. B., Mittler, S., Arakawa, E. and Broza, M. (²004) Chironomid egg masses as a natural reservoir of Vibrio cholerae non-O1 and non-O139 in freshwater habitats. Microbial Ecology. 47: 341-349. Broza, M., Gancz, H., Halpern, M. and Kashi, Y. (²005) Adult Non-Biting Midges: Possible Windborne Carriers of Vibrio cholerae Non-O1 Non-O139. Environmental Microbiology. 7: 576–585. (IF-4.63, R-13/89, Non-Self Citations-4).Halpern, M., Raats, D., Lavion, R. and Mittler, S. (²006) Dependent population dynamics between chironomids (nonbiting midges) and Vibrio cholerae. FEMS Microbiology Ecology. 55: 98-104. (Halpern, M., Landesberg, O., Raates, D. and Rosenberg E.
