N2 - We present an improved mathematical model of population dynamics of mosquito-borne disease transmission. Our model considers the effect of mosquito repellent use and the mosquito’s behavior or attraction to the infected human, which cause mosquitoes’ biased distribution around the human population. Our analysis of the model clearly shows the existence of thresholds for mosquito repellent efficacy and its utilization rate in the human population with respect to the elimination of mosquito-borne diseases. Further, the results imply that the suppression of mosquito-borne diseases becomes more difficult when the mosquitoes’ distribution is biased to a greater extent around the human population.
