Insecticide-induced leg loss does not eliminate biting, reproduction in Anopheles gambiae mosquitoes

Science Daily - Malaria - April 25, 2017 - 13:32
Mosquitoes that lose multiple legs after contact with insecticide may still be able to spread malaria and lay eggs. Leg loss is a common outcome of insecticide exposure, and guidelines dictate that mosquitoes that survive insecticide exposure with fewer than three legs should be considered dead. The implicit assumption is that these mosquitoes are unable to bite humans, and therefore do not contribute to malaria transmission. However, a new study examined whether leg loss inhibits mosquito biting, revealing that one and two legged mosquitoes can both bite a human hand and lay eggs thereafter.
