Here, we present a protocol for studying mating competitiveness of male Aedes aegypti using fluorescent dye as a marker. Female mosquitoes are exposed to both marked and unmarked males for copulation. Post mating, their spermathecae are examined under a fluorescence microscope to determine their mating partner.
